Where you'll be studying
Creative Energy Homes
Our Creative Energy Homes are a key resource, particularly with respect to micro-smart grids, energy storage, demand-side management and occupants’ acceptance of innovative technologies. The seven-house development provides a living test-site for leading firms. Our research findings have fed into the UK government’s Green Deal strategy and the Nottingham Community Climate Change Strategy, and have received widespread acclaim through a number of public engagement activities.
Centre for 3D Design
Our Centre for 3D Design contains specilalised facilities for digital fabrication, laser cutting, and 3D printing.
The Design+Build Studio offers architecture students an immersive, hands-on, learning experience. Students in this studio spend the year experimenting, designing, inventing, and constructing pieces of architecture.

Marmont Centre for Renewable Energy
The Marmont Centre for Renewable Energy demonstrates the use of renewable energy technologies and their integration with architectural design.
Sustainable Research Building
Our Sustainable Research Building showcases sustainable technologies and how they can be integrated into your architectural projects.
As part of the course, you will be expected to work in-studio and in the lab. You may have the option of participating in off-campus design and build projects.
