UK Architecture Courses

Introduction to Architecture

Architecture is the design and mechanics behind the construction of buildings. When becoming a professional architect, the lead designer must focus in not only making the structure look impressive, but also incorporate practicality, functionality, safety and sustainability.

Many UK universities who focus on the study of Architecture, focus not only on the technological and design side of the subject, but also the cultural and historical. Lectures on history and theory will take place alongside art and 3D design to give students the best approach to learning about every element of the profession.
