Architecture

Architecture

Architecture is a word with several different meanings. A general term to describe buildings and other physical structures, but also the art and science of designing buildings, and the design and method of construction.

Studying architecture will give you a thorough understanding and appreciation of the structures in which we live today, but also let you look to the future of design and how ideas can be made real and implemented.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
