|Field of Study:||Architecture (BArch, BA/BS, MArch, MA/MS, PhD)
|Description:||The School of Creative Arts’ BA (Hons) Architecture has been developed in accordance with ARB*/RIBA* guidelines to provide students with a grounded, challenging and creative education in architecture with principles of building construction, urbanism and landscape. The Architecture award sits alongside our long-standing and respected provision in art, design and media, and is constructed to encourage the sharing of ideas and creative input across a wide range of creative disciplines. Our students have the opportunity to work with our national and international industry partners on live collaborative projects. As an architecture student at UH, you will be working within a studio-based professional architectural environment in a variety of projects at different scale, including houses, civic centres, shops, museums, squares, cities and landscapes.
People are central in any design idea. This means that architecture deals with users, communities and citizens, cities and cultures, but also with the notion of the environment and use of existing resources. That is why part of the activities at UH is based on visiting and analysing places and cities, and working in and with different cultural contexts and social scenarios. As a student of architecture, you are encouraged to engage with the social, political and economic factors that influence architecture and society. By working individually and in multi-disciplinary teams, you will acquire an understanding of cultural and urban conditions, and learn how to improve the built environment through your own design. You will develop a unique commercial awareness of the architecture industry in one of the world-leading business-facing university.
