  • Our facilities and resources

    The School of Architecture is hosted in the Abercrombie building. The building was designed by Design Engine Architects and won awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for both its design and sustainability. Glass bridges connect the two sides of the building and there are design studios for you to use on both the third and fourth floors.The building is an example of best practice in terms of sustainability, construction, design and facilities, and will inspire you whilst you create your own visions.

    We also have a dedicated Workshop. The Workshop houses a range of equipment for model making and fabrication. As well as traditional equipment, a range of digital equipment - three laser cutters, two CNC routers, five different types of 3D printing and 3D scanners, is available to students with no additional charge. All relevant training is provided by workshop staff.

    Our facilities include:

    • Two floors of studio spaces, designated 1st studio (undergraduate) and Interior Architecture studio. Computers that have the latest software such as CAD, Rhino and 3D Studio Max for modelling.
    • A fully equipped print room with industry standard printers and 3D printers.
