Aims/Description: For the first six weeks of the Autumn semester students participate in the School's pioneering pedagogical initiative of Live Projects. A range of projects are offered, some involve small built projects, others are of a more research based or consultative nature. Most projects have a relationship with the community and involve a real client. The output of the projects is not prescribed; a project could develop a website for a community group, a feasibility study or a small built construction; the object is engagement with the needs of the client rather than a predetermined product.
