The Technical Studies teaching in the School of Architecture at the University of Westminster has been designed as a linear progression from first year Undergraduate through to final year MArch. For each year of study a lecture series underpins the structure of the teaching. In first year undergraduate, a fourteen-week lecture series is delivered by Pete Silver that sets out an approach to the structure, form, material and environmental principles that constitute the ‘technologies’ of the built environment. In second year undergraduate, Scott Batty runs the uniquel Site Diary assignment that affords students their first experience of a construction site. During the first semester Will McLean organizes the Thursday evening ‘open’ lecture series, which highlights new technological developments in the fields of architecture, engineering and environmental design. We have imbedded different types of teaching input and feedback in the BA and MArch courses, which include lectures, seminars, tutorials and the Friday afternoon consultant sessions, where visiting specialists provide technical expertise for our final year BA Architecture and MArch students (online this year). This specialist input (as in practice) helps to focus the work of the student in regards to structural clarity, visual comprehension and environmental sustainability. This year we have embedded the UOW Sustainability design principles in years two and three of the Degree and we have completely renewed the UndergrRead More...
