Creativity, curiosity and strong intellectual grounding are central to the course. The innovative Architecture programme offered by the University of Cambridge is delivered by tutors working at the cutting edge of contemporary architecture – is balanced with outstanding teaching in the history and philosophy of architecture, contemporary culture and urbanism, as well as construction, structural design, and environmental design.
The small, friendly Department has a very good staff to student ratio, and the supportive community atmosphere gives students the opportunity to push the boundaries of the field and to extend their own abilities in exciting new directions. Facilities include a superb library, studios, and spaces for larger installations, and reprographics areas and workshops.
Many graduates continue into professional training, but some enter other creative fields or research. We have a long-standing tradition of research excellence, in areas such as history and philosophy of architecture, environmentally responsible design, architecture and the moving image, urban design and transport planning, and disaster relief.
