School of Built Environment & Development Studies



Architecture is a fully accredited SACAP professional degree. The design of buildings and their context in the built environment, as well as understanding the needs of the users who will occupy these buildings is taught in a studio environment. A strong History and Theory of Architecture component contextualises the development of architecture through the ages while Building Science and Theory of Structures teaches the realities of design from a scientific perspective. The architecture programme is supported by excellent studio facilities, the Barrie Biermann Architecture Library, Media Centre, computer LAN and Workshop.
