Vertical Studio is a collaborative project for students in BSc years one and two. Students choose from a variety of different units, many of which are run by architects, artists and other practitioners from outside of the university.
Vertical Studio gives our students the unique opportunity to explore, experiment and speculate on the nature and boundaries of the discipline of architecture and engage in activities that go beyond the core learning criteria of our BSc programme.
