A fresh approach to architectural education rooted in its locality but with a global perspective. Architecture meets the needs of people to respect their culture and values and the traditions of their communities while offering the best that new technology and contemporary international design culture can contribute to the shaping of the environment.

Theory, context and language

We promote an approach to building design that is responsive to its physical and cultural context. Whether in the city, the country, or on the coast, design should be responsive to both functional requirements and its physical location.


Sustainability informs the teaching throughout the course, not only through low energy, zero-carbon building design, but also to include social, economic, cultural, health, and resource efficiency.

Applications to this course have now closed.
