“Our school is rooted in the belief that a multi-disciplinary approach to education and research is key to creating a sustainable built environment of the future. Our curriculum focuses on the power of transformation – of our students, our landscapes and our futures. By exploring the challenges facing our contemporary surroundings, we prepare our students to develop skills that enable them to engage morally, ethically, politically, aesthetically, sustainably and technically – creating and crafting an architectural world that promotes health and well-being at its core.
We articulate the crafts, emanating from the engineering tradition, with humanities, to nourish creativity through arts and to strengthen our students’ intellect”
