University of Portsmouth


The school of architecture has within it a range of courses that are associated with architecture, spaces, places and the interior. We offer now a range of scales of design problem for our students, from understanding the city, both regionally and internationally, to designing public spaces, landscapes, buildings, interiors, rooms, exhibitions and installations. The common ground between all our projects and investigation is an understanding of the physical world of the city, the building and the interior. We investigate it conceptually through drawing, sketching and idea: physically, through understanding material, structure, environmental systems: and theoretically through ideologies, texts, commentary and writing.
