This NTU summer course explores creative thinking, drawing, model-making and advanced technologies that architects use today.
The course will introduce you to contemporary approaches to architecture, with ingenious projects that will develop your awareness of how designers are shaping the modern world we live in.
In addition to talks and demonstrations, you'll be set projects that you'll work on in groups, presenting your ideas in 2D as well as simple 3D models - to give you a taste of what it's like to work in industry.
There'll be short, quick projects to test your creativity, and a longer, more involved project to present (in teams or individually) on the final day that responds to a place in the city.
This main project will allow you to present using your preferred method, whether through drawing, model making, words, photographs, collage or other.

During this course you will:

- investigate architecture in the UK and around the world
- learn about the various stages of idea generation and design development that architects go through
- gain experience of new technologies such as scanning whole buildings and using virtual, augmented reality software, and learn how these tools are being used by professionals.

What will you gain?

This will be an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the built environment and create new work for your portfolio.
