What our students say
“I found the assignments thought-provoking, interesting, innovative and certainly challenging.”
K.W., Sustainability and Adaptation in the Built Environment
“The pattern of week-long intensive lecture and studio time in a residential setting is a great incubator for the in-depth discussion, sharing of information and experiences, and peer-to-peer learning that makes CAT quite unique.”
T.A., Professional Diploma in Architecture
As a student on the Sustainability and Adaptation course I was able to use the buildings on site as real case studies, including undertaking air pressure testing and thermal imaging on the Self Build house, undertaking experiments with green roofs, using the workshop for straw bale construction and building a prototype timber frame disaster shelter on site. Being able to witness the load testing of the world’s first rammed earth arch, made by a fellow architecture student, was quite amazing.
