Content

Architecture is the study of the built environment. It is a celebration of our cultural inheritance and a statement outlining our cultural ambitions.

Architects combine practical skills and creativity to meet building needs. Studying architecture will develop your observation, analytical, creative and design skills. You will learn about architecture of the past and the relevance of its principles for the future. You will also study architecture in relation to the societies that produce it.
