Assignment 1: Feasibility Report
In this module, the lecture series will guide you through the RIBA Plan of Works and the sequential writing of the Report. Each lecture typically will last around 30-45 minutes and will introduce and discuss the relevant RIBA Work Stage or topic. During the second part of the lecture, students will present their “homework” from the previous week and we will discuss any questions arising from the previous week’s lecture/ assignment. Attendance is therefore essential to the successful completion of this module.
The Report must demonstrate your understanding through the specific application of the lecture content to your own design project.
Professional communication is an essential skill, and you are expected to utilise diagrams, images, infographics and (see fig. 1 on the previous page) – and in appropriate written English.
Academic integrity: Students must adhere to the university regulations on academic conduct. Formal inquiry proceedings will be instigated if any suspicion of plagiarism or another form of misconduct is suspected in your work.
