BSc (Hons) Architecture
Welcome to the 2021 BSc (Hons) Architecture Degree Show – a culmination of urban, spatial and user investigations, theoretical positioning and design explorations undertaken by our students over the last few years at Coventry University. The projects seek not only to respond to the particularities of a site, client and brief but also to the broader context of Coventry – its historic and post war histories; industrial, economic and political situation; and its current cultural position as the City of Culture 2021. Whilst designing a project that celebrates transportation and sustainability, our students have been actively analysing and developing urban strategies that not only challenge location-specific issues but also consider the wider issue of connection and reconciliation in Coventry. The projects aspire to become new icons in Coventry, acting as catalysts for historic and functional rejuvenation of areas while promoting sustainability over the lifetime of a building.Professionally accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Architects Registration Board (ARB), this course adopts a hands-on approach to learning with a focus on imagination, communication and context. With the intent of developing a well-rounded architectural student, we encourage creative and personal discovery that promotes design development not only in terms of its spatial and conceptual qualities but also, the construction and environmental strategies that underpin its execution.Thank you for visiting us – please enjoy your stay.
