The Socratica

Nestled amidst a serene landscape, the Socratica Building stands as a testament to the symbiotic relationship between philosophy and architecture. Inspired by the timeless wisdom of Socrates, this school of philosophy has been meticulously designed to foster intellectual growth and contemplation. The building's ingenious use of proportion and the Golden Rectangle imbues it with a profound sense of harmony. From the grand entrance to the intimate classrooms, each space within the building exudes a sense of balance and tranquility, encouraging open dialogue and intellectual exploration. The plan, section, and elevation of the Socratica Building have been carefully orchestrated to create a seamless flow of ideas, symbolizing the interconnectedness of knowledge and the pursuit of truth.

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.
