Architecture is the practice of designing buildings, places and spaces. Architects use science, art and technology to create the built environment.

Contemporary architecture tries to integrate environmental and sustainable design principles with advanced technologies to produce innovative, useful and beautiful buildings. Unlike many universities, we combine periods of professional work experience within our courses. This gives you the opportunity to benefit from a mix of academic study and practical experience. Throughout the course, complex design challenges develop your design skills and teach you how cultural, historical and socio-economic factors inform design decisions.
