Description

This summer course explores new ways of thinking and advanced technologies that are being used by professional architects today.

The course will introduce you to contemporary approaches to design, with ingenious projects that will develop your awareness of how designers are shaping the modern world we live in.

During this course you will:

- investigate current building projects in the UK and around the world
- learn the various stages of design development that professionals must go through
- go on excursions to see local projects in progress, as well as talks from guest speakers about their work
- experience first-hand the new technologies being employed, such as scanning whole buildings and using virtual, augmented reality software, and how these tools are being used by design, restoration and heritage professionals.

In addition to lectures you will be set projects that you will work on in groups, presenting your ideas in 2D as well as simple 3D models - to give you a taste of what it’s like to work in industry.

This will be an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the built environment and create new work for your portfolio.
