Haven of Knowledge

The Haven of Knowledge is a campus of research and education in the field of sustainable energy, with a driven focus on utilising maths and physics to create a more sustainable future. The buildings are arranged to create separated green havens, to reconnect the user to their natural environment and promote sustainable thinking. The original and continual goal of mathematics and physics is problem solving, a way in which man can create sense from the world around him. This project uses this to create an architectural solution, addressing some of the constraints and opportunities of the site through principles such as geometry, proportion, and the part to whole relationship to create a better understanding of our natural environment, and isolate this space as a natural haven within the urban surroundings.

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.
