University of the Free State UFS Department of Architecture

University of the Free State UFS Department of Architecture – Check below:

The Department of Architecture is underpinned by a critical inquiry into meaningful place-making. The department focuses on the caring design of the built environment in the following ways:

  • RESEARCH – Dedicated undergraduate bachelor and postgraduate honours, master’s, and doctoral programmes and focused research by staff members in architectural history, theory, ethics, and design
  • TEACHING –  Formal lectures, inter-personal studio facilitation, vertical studio sessions, construction site visits, annual design excursions, and visits to architectural practices
  • COMMUNITY SERVICE –  The UNESCO-accredited Earth Unit and community service learning
  • PRACTICE – Unconditional validation as a South African Architectural Learning Site, locally by South African Council for the Architectural Profession (SACAP) and internationally by the Commonwealth Association of Architects (CAA). Associated with the South African Institute of Architects (SAIA)

Through the integration of design, construction, theory, and history, we aim to sensitively, critically, and sustainably learn to provide meaningful places in the South African and international context.
After completion of their studies students will be equipped to register through SACAP as Architectural Draughtspeople, Architectural Technologists, Senior Architectural Technologists, or Professional Architects.
