Course code: WD144 What is Architecture? ‘Architecture involves everything that influences the way in which the built environment is planned, designed, made, used, furnished, landscaped and maintained’ UNESCO/UIA charter for architectural education 2005 What is the Bachelor of Architecture (Hons)? It is a 5 year honours degree programme, designed in accordance with national and international guidelines on architectural education. It has received academic approval and recognition by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland. Architectural education at WIT is primarily about developing within each student a ‘design mind’ so that they can bring together in a creative way the complex challenges facing the future world of construction. Students are introduced to design methodologies and work in a ‘learning through doing’ environment in the studio where they explore architectural designs growing in complexity as they progress through the various years. They are taught the importance of culture, climate and craft in developing design ideas. Feeding into these studio based projects are the supporting subjects grouped under the generic headings of ‘Cultural Context’, Communications, ‘Technology and the Environment’ and a suite of electives including languages and life drawing which introduces students to related disciplines as well as facilitating international exchange programmes.
