What comes to mind when you think of Architecture?
Buildings, drawing, and design you might say.
You are right!
So, if you are interested in studying Design such as Architecture, the best preparation you can do is to start researching. Begin with famous buildings, famous architects, and even search out any books they may have written. Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier are two intriguing individuals who have made radical changes in the world of Architecture.
In addition, get your drawing on! There is no better way to prepare for a design course than to begin developing your own drawing style. You can draw up your own designs or practice drawing other famous buildings – just as I have here.
Can you name any of these famous buildings?
Drawing is how we talk in design. Instead of explaining your ideas with words – we simply draw. And that takes practice. So start now!
There is a lot on offer and you don’t have to be restricted to one design degree. In your second year of study you get to choose other subjects in any of the design disciplines to combine with your degree. Read more here.
