Architecture (Foundation Entry)
The Architecture (Foundation Entry) Degree Show focuses on the Final Major Project and illustrates the students' creative design process in the form of a pavilion to house an exhibition celebrating Building Design Partnership, one of the world's largest architectural practices founded in Preston. The students examined aspects of building construction methods and society's relationship with the built environment. The group also learned about the ongoing development of UCLan's Masterplan and the site context to help them create their individual pavilion designs for the campus in Preston.
Post-industrialization and the suburban expansion of the city provided the cohort of students further insights into the historical context and future regeneration proposed in the North West. The London study visit to major national museums and galleries encouraged students to gather primary research on the display methods employed in art and architecture exhibitions. The Foundation Entry route enables a wide range of individuals the access to study in a culturally diverse learning environment and acquire a combination of artistic, digital industry skills using emerging technologies.
