Architecture Summer School


Lincoln School of Architecture and the Built Environment

The School of Architecture and the Built Environment is sited in a purpose-built facility designed by the world-renowned architect Rick Mather.  All professional courses in Architecture are validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB).  The BARCH and MArch professional courses in Architecture are validated and recognised by the Board of Architects Malaysia (LAM).

The 2018 Architecture Summer School introduces students to the intellectual and creative requirements of higher education and challenges perceptions of design theory and practice. It aims to provide students with an understanding of what is expected in terms of critical thinking and provides an overview of the tools required in representation of architectural projects. Students will have the opportunity to receive professional tuition and guidance in the completion of a short design project, from initial ideas generation through to the final presentation of work.

The course may also offer opportunities for suitable students to apply for the Master of Architecture RIBA Part 2 programme, subject to requirements.
