The Living School

‘The Living School’ is a place to explore the capabilities of the flora and fauna that we are surrounded by. The curriculum focuses on natural medicines and materials, how these are currently used and how they can be developed- there is an emphasis on learning through experimentation.

The school harnesses the plants grown on site to power its teaching- they are used in labs and workshops alike to allow students to experiment with creating new medicines and materials, pushing boundaries within the plant-based world.

One of the key focuses is keeping a connection with nature at all times- this is vital for the function of the curriculum, and is also proved to bring benefits to the wellbeing of users of the space. This is achieved by providing spaces that respond to and incorporate the environment. This closely ties with the project concept- the incorporation and encapsulation of nature.

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
