Every architect needs a sound knowledge of the building regulations for the country in which they are operating. Focusing on UK building regulations, in this module we introduce urban design principles and planning frameworks. Your project will be to create an urban masterplan, which should include consideration of social and cultural impacts. You will then take this further and focus on an urban building and specific building scheme. You will design a public building, part of which will be in sufficient detail to demonstrate compliance with RIBA (the Royal Institute of British Architects) for your building, design and construction process.
