The School of Architecture Summer School offers a challenging and engaging programme of design studio experience, visits, lectures and skills training.
This six-day short course is ideal preparation for Master’s study and will give participants an opportunity to experience the environment and methodologies of spatial design studies at the RCA while preparing material that can contribute to a design portfolio.
Focused around a spatial design project, working across scales from the urban to the interior, students will work individually and in groups on design proposals.
The course brings together theoretical reflection and production, pushing participants to develop their skills and to generate conceptual and physical products of the highest standard for their portfolio.
Supported by expert staff from across architecture and interior design with opportunities for individual work and collaborative projects. Projects are supported by course tutors and external contributors with a varied range of expertise. In summer 2022, the programme is convened by John Ng and Dr Tania Lopez Winkler.
Invited guest tutors from industry are Dyvik Kahlen, a London/Porto/Oslo based office established in 2010 by Christopher Dyvik and Max Kahlen, operating across various scales and sectors in the UK, Holland, Germany and Norway and have taught at the RCA for 5 years.
The course will take place in-person at our Kensington London campus, with visits to a variety of sites around London to enable the studio to use the city as its testing ground.
