The University of Reading is pleased to announce that it will be opening a new School of Architecture in 2016.
The School will enhance the University's world-class reputation for research and teaching relating to the built environment. Recruitment for the first intake of around 40 students begins later this year.
Students will benefit from close teaching by established experts both from academia and the architecture profession, as well as from superb industry links. They will develop crucial skills such as critical thinking and creative problem-solving required to design buildings, and have the opportunity to design ‘live' projects for real clients.
Leading the new School will be Lorraine Farrelly who joins the University as the Foundation Professor of Architecture.
Professor Farrelly was previously Deputy Head of the School of Architecture and Professor of Architecture and Design at the University of Portsmouth. An experienced architect and educator, she has always worked alongside practitioners and the broader community in progressing a professional mode of architectural education. Professor Farrelly is committed to an industry-facing School of Architecture, working in partnership with practising architects to ensure that students will be ready for practice when they graduate.
She is the author of several books, including The Fundamentals of Architecture, which provides students with a grounding in six fundamental areas of architecture design and process at the start of their studies. Her research interests include the design of learning environments in higher education, representation and drawing techniques, and innovative materials in the interior environment.
