The Sustainable, Education and Research Centre

The brief for my final project was to ‘Challenge the Mythologies of Learning’. The project will be a centre for knowledge exchange based in Snienton, Nottinghamshire, UK, which will challenge current learning methodologies and education typologies. For the project I will explore the education typology of Adult Education centres as these are seen as an afterthought and are not given much attention to in todays society. The aim of this learning narrative is to challenge mythologies of learning, whilst offering links and connections with the local community. My project brief is based around involving the homeless within Snienton and its link to the city centre where homelessness is a large issue. The aim of my brief is to provide an Adult Education Centre that offers woodwork and joinery workshops to teach new skills to those who are homeless and the local community which will strengthen the bonds between the stigma of homeless people vs those who are not. The other underlying aim of my project is to create a building which is a sustainable as possible to show and teach the community that sustainability is the way forward and that it can be achieved if everyone works together as one.

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.
