Open Day

School of Architecture Open Day

4 May 2017 | 6pm


The School of Architecture at the Royal College of Art offers a unique depth of study into architecture and interior design as sites of invention and intervention. Our approach is relevant to the global social, political and cultural context of today, and invites informed speculation on the future. What marks out the RCA as a distinctive environment for architects and interior designers are the opportunities it offers to realise live projects, and to work alongside designers and fine artists in a concentrated, postgraduate-only environment.

Come along to this School-wide Open Day to find out more about the School and its programmes.
