The basic underlying approach for PDE is 'core-explore'. The first three years of the studio programme at GSA are centred around core design project activities. The curriculum is designed to develop creativity, exploration and expression of ideas, and to build confidence in applying the PDE design process. You will be involved in a wide range of activities including design awareness and aesthetics, drawing and visualisation, model-making and prototyping. Skills in communication and project management are also developed.
