NTU Architecture Subject Group

School of Music & Instrument Craft.

Situated at the joining of the Nottingham Canal and River Trent The ‘School of Music and Instrument Craft’ provides a porous space that is open to the public and open to the canal. This project is a phenomenological conversation between the user, the architecture and the craft; whether that be composing music, experiencing a concert or sculpting an instrument. The programme of the building will take the form of a community music school and guitar making workshop revolving around the theme of phenomenology and craftsmanship.

The spaces capture this thesis by allowing the user to tune their surroundings to alter their experience like searching for the perfect note. Whether that be by moving from space to space, or mechanical and digital alteration of their environment. This allows the user to become a creative and intelligent piece of the architecture

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.
