"It is socially engaged. It is architecturally relevant. Something that pertains to the current culture, current facilities, current ideas." Nate Kolbe, Cass Architecture Course Leader.


About

Cass Architecture

Architecture at The Cass provides you with the practical skills and confidence needed to excel in the profession. Teaching staff come from some of London’s most exciting architectural practices and combine experimentation and research with extensive practical experience. As a student, you also have access to the amazing range of specialist analogue and digital workshops in The Cass.

Our graduates go on to work as architects, architectural assistants, interior designers, urban designers or in related fields such as research, journalism and procurement. We enjoy close links with the people and organisations that shape London. Our Live Projects happen locally and around the world and currently in places such as India, Nepal, Japan, Sierra Leone, Russia, and Brazil.

The School is now housed almost entirely in the refurbished Central House in Aldgate, purpose designed for the Cass by Florian Beigel and Philip Christou from our own Architecture Research Unit (ARU).

You'll benefit from our central London location and its close proximity to internationally renowned creative and industry hubs. The school's extensive networks and teaching practitioners will encourage you to expand your knowledge and skills through lectures, events and practical advice, leaving you with excellent career prospects.
