Architecture (Foundation Entry)
The BSc (Hons) Architecture Foundation Entry route is a preparatory year long course introducing freehand and technical drawing, Auto CAD software and model-making. The course includes the study of contemporary and historical architectural contexts enabling a wide range of individuals the access to study in a culturally diverse learning environment to acquire a combination of artistic and digital industry skills involving emerging technologies.
The course included the opportunity to join the GBIA European study visit to Berlin and experience the city’s architecture and culture whilst gathering research on curatorial practice and furthering their knowledge of international architecture.
The three studio design projects this year focused on the research and development of an off-grid retreat exploring climate change that is situated along the coastal region of Formby, an infill gallery exploring sustainability sited within a block of Lord Street in the seaside town of Southport and a nursery school located in Avenham Park, Preston.
