Architecture Studies

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

Architecture is the process of designing and planning a space or building according to a set of aesthetic, social and environmental guidelines. Because of this, architecture is often divided into categories depending on the overarching style.

Rationale of the Training Course - Developing Social Housing Projects

One of the characteristics of developing countries is fast growing cities and the lack of affordable and adequate housing. Social housing policies try to address the housing problem but have often been implemented in such ways that the people in real need are not reached and/or the social housing projects do not improve the overall living conditions of people or lack a contribution to sustainable urban development o their problems. Developing and therefore allowing for better implementation of social housing contributes directly to the living conditions and to the growth of cities in the developing world.

Course in Architecture - Street Life Studies

CEPT | Summer Winter School
Campus Full time 12 days May 2019 India Ahmedabad

‘Street Life Studies’ puts forward the premise that the vitality of public spaces hinges on their ability to facilitate a diversity of often unexpected usages, movements, and interactions, by a broad spectrum of people, over varying time periods. It suggests that the street, as the fundamental public space of the city, is where this activity can and should occur. Within this framework, the course suggests designers may need to take a more active role in understanding, first hand, the complexity of an environment, in this case, the street, before designing for it.

‘Street Life Studies’ puts forward the premise that the vitality of public spaces hinges on their ability to facilitate a diversity of often unexpected usages, movements, and interactions, by a broad spectrum of people, over varying time periods. It suggests that the street, as the fundamental public space of the city, is where this activity can and should occur.

Within this framework, the course suggests designers may need to take a more active role in understanding, first hand, the complexity of an environment, in this case, the street, before designing for it.

Student Learning Outcome:

Analyze: Undertake extensive on-field analysis of two urban streets in cross-cultural locations. Identify, document, deconstruct and compare their spaces, systems, users, and usages and interpret the driving forces behind them and key patterns arising. Propose: Drawing directly from on-field street studies, identify an urban 'issue' that is small-scale and human-focused as the basis for the formulation of a design proposal. Produce: Create quick, hand-drawn and digitally post-produced images to visually communicate urban observations, data and design proposals, at a technically simple but graphically powerful level. Collaborate: Work efficiently in small, multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural groups to complete a design task. Interpret: Outline, at a rudimentary level, a series of key contemporary and historical urban approaches and classify the processes of this course within these. Use a number of nominated texts to more rigorously interrogate on-field observations. ... [-]
