Royal Institute of British Architecture Ambassador Programme
A small but committed group of Year 12 students has been taking part in a collaborative project with RIBA and architecture practice Haworth Tompkins as part of RIBA’s Architecture Ambassadors programme.
Our students were shown how architects communicate and develop ideas from initial concepts through to final designs through research, drawing and model making.
They then set us a brief to design a public pavilion for one of a choice of three local sites, St Luke's Church, Cantelowes Park or Granary Square.
Last week we went to the Haworth Tomkins to tour the studios and to present our ideas.
The group had developed a really wide range of ideas such as a community conservatory for the church; a sunken seating area with a green roof for Granary Square and sheltered, comfortable seating for Cantelowes Park.
Every student presented their ideas and architects Sophie, Alise, Sam and Laura gave in depth feedback.
They were really impressed with the variety of ideas and the quality of the presentations.
Great work from Alice, Bibi, Poppy, Rene, Thalia and Zena.
