The Joiners Arms

Since the 2008 financial crisis, the Covid-19 pandemic, and now the cost-of-living crisis, pubs are closing their doors. To revive the pub industry post-Covid, an architectural response is needed. By integrating a Bar Stock Exchange, all pub types can unite their customer groups and rebuild the community. Selling alcohol at affordable prices based on demand can achieve this. Additionally, renovating the existing buildings while maintaining their individual facades will create a common theme for The Joiners Arms, bringing the four establishments together to share profits and attract local patrons.

MArch Architecture

The Master of Architecture (MArch) embraces the challenge of 21st Century architectural practice and focuses on educating architects with a global outlook through projects set in local, national, and international contexts.

Through “vertical studios” in each year of study, steered by leading practitioners and academics, we put current architectural thinking at the heart of the course. We locate architectural design centrally as an academic discipline through rigorous cross-disciplinary design research and complex methodological application. The course recognises the essential cross-cutting and cross-disciplinary nature of architecture, bringing together diverse disciplines aiming to create collaborative/group work as a means of developing design creativity within the realistic teamwork environment of practice. All projects will be developed considering sustainability, environmental, socio-economic and cultural aspects, rather than being studied and applied as discrete areas of teaching and learning.
