University of The Arts London Architecture
BA Architecture explores design for the human environment through the buildings and spaces we inhabit, and the objects we use inside those spaces.
Key issues include community and sustainability. BA Architecture is fully validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board, meaning that all graduates will have achieved Part 1 of the professional qualification for architects in the UK.
This course is part of the Spatial Practices Programme.

It was the experimental and interdisciplinary attitude that drew me towards Central Saint Martins.
