Wits Architecture : BAS Snapshot Exhibition 2009

EXHIBITION CLOSING SOON! LAST CHANCE TO VIEW...

BAS SNAPSHOT EXHIBITION 2009 - WITS UNIVERSITY


This exhibition of current student work for the Wits Bachelor of Architectural Studies degree serves as a snapshot of what kinds of knowledge and skills are integrated into the making of an architectural designer. This engaging selection of projects is exemplary of the well-structured build-up of skills across different subjects, and gives a good overview of the course. It is especially relevant to school-leavers considering architecture as a career, since applications for this degree at Wits for 2010 will be closing soon. The BAS degree is the first step to becoming a professional architect, followed by a year of experience in an architects’ office before returning to the School of Architecture for two years of postgraduate study to attain a M.Arch.Prof. The final steps to professional registration are a period of practical experience and passing a professional practice exam.

In the BAS course students explore applied maths, descriptive geometry, computer graphics, graphic representation and photography, model-building, structural physics, history and theory of architecture and office practice which are all integrated into the core subjects of architectural design and construction, well-illustrated by these related projects across the three years of study. If you would like to meet the staff for the BAS degree, please come to the opening at 18h00 on 11 August.
