What is architecture and environmental design?
Architecture and environmental design involves the practice of designing and constructing buildings that make a positive contribution to society and allow the creation of sustainable environments. It combines an essential understanding of how buildings can be energy efficient and how creative design ideas can make buildings and outdoor environments that are healthy and uplifting to use.

This course

Study on a visionary course that is unique in the UK and is designed to prepare you as an architect who can respond to the future environmental challenges that architecture must address.

You join a body of students and lecturers who are passionate about how architecture can be environmentally responsible. After ten years of successful delivery and development this environmental ambition remains at the heart of what we do.

As a graduate, you leave with a desire to make a positive contribution to the lives of people and the environments in which they live.

Your lectures and seminars cover current theory and examples of best practice in sustainable architecture. You consider low energy design principles and how architecture can be good for the wellbeing of people, using good daylight, natural ventilation and innovative solar design strategies.

As a student you have stimulating interactions with a talented design staff, who are all qualified architects. They include a multi-award winning professor, a course leader who worked for Sir Norman Foster and a lecturer who built his own zero energy home to live in.

The design projects you work on allow you to experiment with original ideas for environmental architecture, developing and testing them in a highly supportive studio atmosphere. Studios have 24 hour access.

You develop the construction skills that architects must possess and are taught how to apply these as a core and creative aspect of architecture. You receive excellent CAD training, which is highly valued by employers, and access to up-to-date environmental design simulation software.

The history and theory lectures you attend provide diverse architectural knowledge. You carry out an individual project on current theory and practice in environmental architecture as part of the course.

European field trips during your second and third years explore the culture, history and architecture of cities such as • Paris • Barcelona • Florence • Helsinki • Berlin • Rotterdam • Rome

Key areas of study
Lectures explore the latest thinking on • environmental issues • architectural theory • cultural studies • professional practice • building technology.
