Course Introduction

Some of the learning is through lectures and seminars, and involves reading and writing. The heart of the programme is the design studio, where students learn the strategies of architectural design through design project work. The Architecture Subject Area within the School of Architecture, Computing and Engineering is based in the A.V.A building, on the UEL Docklands Campus. As well as excellent studios, there are extensive wood, metal and digital fabrication workshops, photographic darkrooms, printing and computer suites. Students also visit study sites and buildings, cities and landscapes in the UK and abroad. At the end of the Academic Year, the students exhibit their work at the end'of'year Summer Showcase.
