NTU Architecture Subject Group

Cook 'n' Grow

The main purpose of the culinary school is to provide a place in the community where children with autism can gather and socialise. As socialisation is often difficult for those with autism, it is important that this design creates a safe and happy environment enabling the children to mix confidently. They will be growing, cooking, and selling food to help them better integrate into society and grow into independent adults.

The design takes advantage of the existing slope using it as a feature and the design is respectful of the historic factors and the community that surrounds the site.

As the children learn more about growing food and cooking it themselves, the more experienced children will become mentors for newer children, giving them a sense of responsibility. This will encourage healthier individuals and give the children more confidence to be involved in the wider community.

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.
