The Architecture Studios are located over 3 floors in Eldon Building, the home of our Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries (CCI). The studios have 10 open-plan, flexible learning spaces, where students engage in tutored learning, and individual and group work.

Multiple 'studios' or groups use these spaces at the same time, and they're designed to encourage a studio culture of collaboration, creativity, and dialogue in the design process.

The studios are also used as a large exhibition area for student work during the annual Graduate Show.
