Sustainable design knowledge shared by BCA Team in DLA module


In Apr 2023, Diploma in Landscape Architecture (DLA) teaching team launched a new domain specific module, Design for Safety & Maintainability (DFS) for School of Architecture & the Built Environment students. The module aims to discuss insights into sustainable design with considerations for safety and maintainability. The pioneer DFS class has 20 students; with a mix of Year 3 students from Diploma in Landscape Architecture (DLA), Diploma in Interior Design (DID) and Diploma in Architecture (DARCH). To enhance their knowledge of the topic, invited guests from Building Control Authority (BCA) conducted two informative learning sessions with a learning activity for the DFS students. The learning outcomes will contribute towards their preparation for Final-Year-Project and future application in work.
