RIBA Mentorship Scheme for year 3 BArch students!

The University of Lincoln, Leicester School of Architecture in De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. This is the fourth year that the scheme has been run in the region, starting at the University of Lincoln in 2014.

Cecilia Godoy, RIBA Project Coordinator leading this programme is very pleased with the scheme’s development:

“We are delighted that the RIBA student mentoring scheme in the East Midlands continues to grow year after year. We are very grateful for the involvement of new Chartered Practices, as well as Architect members who are willing to help the students at this stage of their careers”.

RIBA student mentoring is a chance for participants to get a real insight into practice by being welcomed into the team with the support of their own personal mentor. It is seen by participating schools of Architecture as an excellent preparation for their students’ forthcoming year out.  For the practices it is an opportunity to benefit by engaging with the next generation of architects and by keeping in touch with emerging talent.’

We are grateful to be supported by the following practices in the Lincolnshire/Newark Area:Core, Benoy, Be-Design, Steven Dunn Architect, Neil Cawley Architect, John Fowkes Architects, Studio G Associates, Simons Group, XL architects, RPS, Steven Dunn Architects.

BArch student awarded RIBA Sir Norman Foster Travel Scholarship!

RIBA - Chloe LoaderWe are very excited to announce that Chloe Loader, Year 2 Bachelor of Architecture student has been awarded the RIBA Sir Norman Foster travel Scholarship!!

Foster + Partners announced today that  Chloe was awarded the 2017 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship, a yearly £7,000 student scholarship that gives the recipient an opportunity to travel internationally and “research the future survival of our cities and communities”.

In her submission “Emerging Cities: Sustainable Master-Planning in the Global South”, Chloe will examine how the cities of Curitiba, Mumbai, and Jakarta have each handled rapid urbanization to identify how other cities with similar economics and demographics can potentially evolve.

She’ll begin her travels in Curitiba, Brazil, where she will study how the city has developed a successful urban model while handling large influxes of rural migrants. She will then travel to Mumbai and Jakarta to compare and contrast them with her Curitiba findings. Chloe will conclude her project by exploring potential design strategies for urban development to engage communities.

As the global number of people living in informal settlements is expected to rise to 1.5 billion by 2020, a better understanding of these communities is crucial in the present, says Professor Glen Mills, who has studied informal settlements and is the Head of the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Lincoln. “They are not going to go away so, as planners, architects and engineers, we need to understand them and that’s why Chloe’s project is so relevant. Informal settlements are a part of our global future,” Mills said.

Jelly Buildings!

 

This week students were challenged to make a famous building out of Jelly. It was quite the messy event! Students from the whole school came to witness the wonderment! The idea behind the challenge was that students would each have to study a particular building, understand it in plan, section and three dimensions and document it. Students also had to make a model of the building and produce a mould using vacuum forming. The quick project got students working hard in the workshop and helped them become more familiar with the tools available to them! IMG_0441
Here are some examples!
