This course is centred on studio work that is intended to stretch the boundaries of design imagination. It is a modular course based on design project work, supported by lectures and seminars that examine the theoretical, practical and material dimensions of architecture. The course is designed to help students define the kind of architect they want to be and tailor their portfolio towards the practices in which they want to work or areas in which they want to demonstrate their expertise. Design projects in the 1st year (stage 5) are based on a visit to a major European city. Students' work focuses on the urban scale and the detail scale with studios exposed to a diversity of design approaches. In the 2nd year (stage 6), students choose from a range of thematic studios on offer to pursue a self-led design thesis.
