Do you have a flair for making and exploring materials? Are you interested in creating innovative contemporary spaces? Do you enjoy making models, architectural designs, interior design or VR (Virtual Reality)? If so this is the course for you.

This specialist course will give students a broad and creative education in the world of conceptual architecture. The course will focus on innovative and highly conceptual structures – architecture, spatial / interior design and environments.

Designs and outcomes will be for building proposals – but equally for games design, film/TV/Theatre production, futuristic visions and solutions to the habitation of our changing planet.

Students will be working with highly qualified staff who are experts in their field, to produce innovative virtual structures as well as innovative model making skills to transform ideas into physical forms. The course offers many opportunities for working with creative industries for learners to work on live projects set by architects and designers, to develop their ideas professionally.
