There is no place better to be introduced to architecture than in the grand, historic surroundings of Cambridge and its 800 year old university.
Everything in the built environment contains architectural ideas and design: from doorways to skyscrapers. This course will provide a fascinating introduction to the way that architects think and design, as well as providing students with greater insight into what makes Cambridge’s most iconic buildings such stunning examples of fine architecture. This short course touches upon both the creative, expressive side, and precise, technical side of architecture. It will also get students thinking about the profound influence that space plays in shaping human thought, emotion and action.
Students will get the chance to create their own basic designs and will find out more about the different career opportunities in architecture.
This Add-On will take place outside of normal class time, and will combine lectures with hands-on activities.
