Architecture

LSAD’s Architecture undergraduate course is taught in an environment that is geared towards harnessing your creativity and critical thinking skills. It encourages you to explore design ideas within the context of culture, the environment and technology, while the studios, exhibitions and workshops of the brand new purpose-built Art and Design Academy provide a stimulating creative environment.

You’ll be based in the heart of a great cultural city with some of the country’s most iconic landmarks and impressive urban redevelopment, you will be directly involved in live projects that have links to Liverpool and its cultural, artistic and public communities.

You will also have opportunities to explore first hand some of the other great cultural centres across Europe and the USA, such as Barcelona, Copenhagen, Rotterdam, Berlin, Paris, Athens, Rome and New York. We also run a European exchange programme, which gives you the chance to spend a semester studying in Valencia, Copenhagen, Bremen or Graz.

Your studies will fall into three main areas – Architectural Design, History and Theory, and Technology and Practice – and your weekly timetable will typically include studio design projects and workshops, theoretical lectures and seminars, with as much as 60% of a particular module spent in private study. In addition to your architecture-based modules, you have the opportunity to enlist on various Skill Sets offered by the Academy to enhance your knowledge and skills in a wider range of areas.
