BA3 is a year in which students begin to specialise. The students select from seven Humanities electives and eight Studio ateliers. The ateliers have also informed the Technologies case studies and the Technologies design project. BA3 is a place for the students to diversify and begin shaping the type of architect that they want to be in the future. This future thinking is supported by the professional studies lectures, which has brought together practitioners, academics, industry professionals and alumni from around the world to help students think about what is next for them and their matters of concern going forward.

BA3 students have once again embraced and demonstrated the diverse offering at the School. Whether this be in the Humanities essay, the Studio design project or their Technologies projects, the quality and complexity of our students’ work makes us all proud. Students have risen to the challenge to think about and respond to the complex social and environmental questions that will make them conscientious and successful designers. The students’ impressive work and strong positions to an ever-changing built environment and society, will help prepare them for the challenges that they will encounter when working in industry.

The exhibition pamphlet, digital and built end of year show, are just a snapshot of the amazing work that our BA3 graduating students have produced in their final year of study, a testament to their commitment and focus. We would also like to thank everyone who was involved in making this such a successful year, including our guests who have given up time in industry to join us in studio and lectures, to our associate lecturers, for their expertise and enthusiasm and to our staff who have so passionately contributed their knowledge and organisational skills to make the year what it has been. Finally, we would like to say a huge thank you and well done to all our students. It has been a pleasure working with you and we wish you all the best for the future.
