NTU Architecture Subject Group

The Trent Kintsugi

The Trent Kintsugi will showcase how re-integrating factories into our cities, embracing
the flaws of the traditional factory and rebuilding a more attractive, successful and
sustainable typology, enabling shattered communities to re-unite as one. The concept
arose from the Japanese process of joining broken pottery with gold, embracing the beauty of human imperfections.
The factory allows visitors to follow the process of the new typology, and flow out through a herb garden to allow for some familiarity, to then arrive at a restaurant.
The water quality will improve with this new method, allowing people to use and enjoy the canal that links the two sides of the site and the river that borders it

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.
