Pinatex Leather Laboratory

The Vegan Leather Laboratory takes you on a journey through the process of manufacturing vegan leather, bringing the outside in with the use of biophilic design. The factory and visitor centre will explore the way clean leather is produced. This will re-educate everyone into the way of thinking that animal leather is no longer the only option, allowing for innovative sustainable ways of creating the textile using recycling and reusing currently waste materials. The factory will use Pineapple leaves that currently are a complete waste material and turn this into the leather. At present, these high volumes are currently burnt or discarded into landfill creating very harmful environmental impacts

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.
