Student guide.

Live Projects offer Sheffield students the unique opportunity to experience the hands-on running of a real project for a real client within the curriculum.

The projects are student led, allowing the often-overlooked skills of management, communication, team working, briefing and engagement to be developed, alongside creative design and presentation skills.

The projects run for the first six weeks of each autumn semester. During these six weeks fifth and sixth year architecture students work together in groups of approx. 12 people to develop a real client’s brief, for a real problem, towards a final outcome. The learning objectives place equal emphasis on the process of the project, rather than just focussing on the final product.  Importance is placed not only on design quality, but also on engagement practice, creative participation and how the design is developed.
