Summer Programme

The Welsh School of Architecture (WSA) launched its first International Summer Programme in July 2013.

Students on the 2018 Low Carbon Design Programme

The School is acknowledged as a world leader in the research and development of sustainable and low carbon building design in the UK, China and the Middle East.

Participate

The Low Carbon Architecture Summer Programme (LCASP) brings together international undergraduates and recent graduates from schools of architecture and other built environment disciplines who are keen to develop a UK experience in low carbon design.

During the couple of weeks spent at WSA, students engage in interactive and inspiring workshops, seminars and team work, whilst participating in project and photo competitions.

Activities

Previous summer schools have included talks from enthusiastic leading practitioners from renowned UK architectural firms, such as Foster and Partners, MAKE Architects, SOM, ARUP, Scott Brownrigg as well as Roger Stirk Harbour and Partners.

Students are also given the opportunity to attend field visits to remarkable low carbon and sustainable venues such as the St Fagans National Museum of History, the BRE Innovation Park in Watford and Solcer House.

It’s been an amazing experience attending the sustainable architecture workshop in Cardiff – it’s a great exposure for students and architects worldwide.
