Architecture students attend new Architecture Summer School

Posted on

Design Technology students Kit Wong and Nic Cassidy jumped at the chance to take part in a new summer school organised for Year 12 students by Anglia Ruskin at their Chelmsford campus.

The aims of the summer school were to give students an inside look into the world of Architecture at university, and to have their portfolios examined by members of the Anglia Ruskin Department of Archaeology. Kit and Nic stayed in a hall of residence for three nights, then during the day worked with both staff and students from the university. Activities included a visit to William Morris’ ideal house and to the RIBA Stirling prize-winning Salvation Army citadel.  Nic and Kit also had to design a chair using only recycled cardboard!

Nic and Kit produced a poster about their summer school (pictured) and would highly recommend the course.

Stuart Deering, Design Technology Course Team Leader, comments: “This was an excellent way for our Architecture students to find out more about both Architecture at university and as a career. Having their portfolios inspected by members of the Department of Architecture will also give Nic and Kit’s university applications a boost. We are extremely grateful to Anglia Ruskin for making this opportunity available to our students.”
