This extended degree includes an intensive foundation year (Year 0), which will allow you to progress on to one of our architecture or interior design undergraduate degree courses at The Cass. You’ll begin by undertaking a broad range of short studio and workshop projects in visual imagery and practical making. These will help you develop skills and techniques that are common across all our extended degree courses and are followed by short projects that focus more specifically on architecture and interior design. During these subject-specific projects you’ll have the opportunity to explore spatial and orthogonal drawing, inhabitation, materials, process, modelling, structure, scale, surface, texture and light. By the end of your foundation year you’ll have produced a substantial portfolio of work that will allow you to progress on to one of The Cass’s architecture or interior design undergraduate degree courses. You’ll also have developed as a confident, creative and socially-engaged practitioner with the ability to make more informed decisions about your own work within the context of the creative field you go on to study.
