Immerse yourself in a week-long investigation of architecture and the built environment through unique access to the British Library and the RIBA  collections. We will explore and develop a wide range of creative and critical skills to help us both understand and communicate our responses to architectural spaces.

The course includes practical workshops and creative activities that introduce mapping, drawing, photography, concrete poetry, zine-making and curation as tools for looking, thinking and creatively responding to architecture and the built environment. Daily show-and-tells from arts practitioners and curatorial staff at the RIBA and the British Library will further develop your insights and provide inspiration for the development of your own work.

Whether you are contemplating a career in architecture or art, are already working in these fields, or just want to engage imaginatively with architecture to develop your artistic approach and critical thinking skills, this course will enable you the time, resources and expert guidance to develop fresh perspectives on the built environment in London and beyond.

Please read the PDF above for a detailed programme of each day. This course takes place at the British Library and the RIBA. Lunch is provided each day. Please contact to discuss any access needs and we will do our best to meet them.
