Architecture and Architecture International (RIBA part 2)

The course is design centred and asks you to explore issues of critical regionalism and tectonic expression in relation to your own developing theoretical position. You will be expected to develop a high degree of sensitivity to the context within which design work is undertaken in geographical, cultural, social and technical terms. All design projects explore applications of sustainability and encourage a wide and plural outlook appropriate for both developed and developing countries. In this worldview, understanding of progressive theories of design and the application of advanced construction methods co-exist with concern for the implementation of sustainable technologies, awareness of regional development issues and respect for craft-based building practices. The rationale and definition of 'international' both builds upon the studies undertaken as part of the Architecture (International) BA(Hons) degree awarded by the University of Huddersfield and acknowledges the reality of rapidly changing architectural practice in a fast moving, global context. You will be prepared for new and emerging forms of practice through the development of your personal learning skills and a deep understanding of the need for flexibility, adaptability, innovation and enterprise in your career. The course is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars, practical workshops and a programme of design projects, some of which are based in foreign locations and involve a period of study overseas.
