BA3 is a place for the students to diversify and begin shaping the type of architect that they want to be in the future. The students select from nine Humanities electives and eight Studio ateliers. The ateliers have inform the Technologies case studies and the Technologies design project is based on the students’ studio work. Students’ future thinking is supported by the professional studies lectures, which have brought together practitioners, academics, industry professionals and alumni from around the world to help students consider their next steps and values.

This year, BA3 students have once again embraced and demonstrated the diverse offering at the School. Whether this be in the Humanities essay, the Studio design project or their Technologies projects, the quality and complexity of our students’ work makes us all proud. They have risen to the challenge in their responses to complex social and environmental questions. These will make them conscientious and successful designers. This impressive body of work, combined with their strong positions to an ever-changing built environment and society, will help prepare the students for the challenges that they will encounter when working in industry.

The exhibition pamphlet, digital and built end of year show, are just a snapshot of the amazing work that our BA3 graduating students have produced in their final year of study, a testament to their commitment and focus. We would also like to thank everyone who was involved in making this such a successful year, including our guests, who come from industry to join us in studio and lectures, to our tutors, for their expertise and enthusiasm and to our lecturers who have so passionately contributed their knowledge and organisational skills to make the year what it has been. Finally, we would like to say a huge thank you and well done to all our students. It has been a pleasure working with you and we wish you all the best for the future.
