Sherborne Urban Design summer School
We were delighted to welcome 17 students in July over a three-day residential course in the beautiful setting of Sherborne School (Dorset) to provide an introduction to designing beautiful, sustainable, prosperous, economically and socially successful places that will stand the test of time.
2024 dates will be announced on our social media channels.
Much of the knowledge needed to create traditional places where many people want to live is no longer taught in most architecture and urban design courses.
This course introduces core urban design principles including the idea of place, mixed-use neighbourhoods, public space, gentle density, landscape, building typologies and architectural language. You will also explore the connections between urban form and design with wellbeing, sustainability, prosperity, value and popularity.
It is aimed at undergraduates and school leavers who are interested in pursuing a career in the built environment. However, anyone 18 and over is very welcome.
