You may have acquired some excellent abilities so far in design and planning, but do you possess the skills to enable your ideas to take form and say something about the environment you live in, about yourself? The Business of Architecture Programme has been created to serve as a bridge between design and the real world, design table and built form.
While we welcome newcomers, neo -laureates and even those who have already launched their careers but want to open their own business are perfect candidates. Make your Mark.
