A YEAR IN THE SCHOOL
student projects at Portsmouth School of Architecture
At Portsmouth School of Architecture, the transformations occur through our ethos of care and through methodologies of encounter – material, constructional, theoretical and conceptual – and through pressing local and global situated matters of concern. PSA students are expected to engage socially, politically, culturally, bodily, materially, and environmentally with their world through their work, embodying ethical responsibility in caring for co-existence.
Through the projects and coursework we set, and through our curricula which draw from current research, we critically engage with, and question, the normative behaviours which often marginalise human and non-human kin (including the earth), and look for architectures which nourish the oft-fragile and diverse relationships in situated ecologies.
