Architecture is concerned with human habitation in all its aspects and on any scale, from the house to the city. It fulfills the human imperative for shelter and celebration of life by creating places for gathering, work and solitude. The programme is a studio-based programme with a wide range of courses in humanities, technology, design computation and professional practice providing a comprehensive introduction to architecture. A sequence of six core design studios begins in Year 2 and ends in a final studio that integrates previous knowledge and themes into a capstone architectural design project in Year 4.
This programme allows students to learn through discourse, design and discovery; develop design skills; appreciate aesthetic and ethical values. Students can enrich core studies through elective courses and exploring related disciplines. There are plenty of chances for students to experience other cultures via international collaborative studios, study tours abroad and student exchange programmes. Students can also utilise the facilities of the School of Architecture, including designated individual studio workspace, the 24/7 Architecture Library, digital fabrication labs and model-making workshops.
Graduates are well-equipped to explore wide-ranging design and building related careers. This programme can be followed by the professionally accredited two-year Master of Architecture that prepares students for a career as an architect in Hong Kong and beyond.
