For the last decade it has been a multi-disciplinary school, reflecting the collaborative nature of architectural practice and the design and construction industries.
Known as the 'Granite City' Aberdeen is world renowned for its remarkable granite architecture, epitomised by Marischal College, one of Scotland's largest and most impressive neo-gothic buildings. The City's medieval heart and new town are linked by Union Street, a mile long neoclassical 'bridged street', which supports a handsome array of commercial and retail buildings. The city is also a dynamic European hub for the global energy industry, and as such is a centre of innovation and enterprise.
As the most northerly School of Architecture in the United Kingdom, the school draws upon the rich diversity of landscape and culture of the north, balanced with expertise in sustainable design and inputs from visiting professionals from all relevant disciplines, giving a course with a strong sense of contemporary relevance.
