Description

Have you always been interested in architecture and would love to learn more? Are you thinking of applying to study architecture? If you replied yes to any of these questions, this is the ideal course for you. It is an introductory course that will help you to understand what is needed to build a portfolio and decide whether this is the subject for you.

Topics covered

  • The course is based around an architectural project that can be included in a portfolio for application for an architecture or foundation course.
  • You will be introduced to spatial exploration through sketching, architectural drawing and model making.
  • By completing your project, you will gain an understanding of what you need to do in order to build a portfolio.
  • There will be opportunities to go through examples of candidates' portfolios that have been successful in applications to study architecture, and clarify the "do's" and "don'ts".

Please note that given the constraints of time, you will not be able to complete a full portfolio during the course. However, the course will be a start, and it will provide you with a clearer idea of how to go about building work that is appropriate for inclusion in a portfolio in the future.

Entry requirements: You must be at least 16 and under 19 years old.

Level: Beginners
