About the project
Vertical Studio is a collaborative project for students in BSc years one and two. Students choose from a variety of different studios, many of which are run by architects, artists and other practitioners from outside of the university. All studios encourage experimentation and speculation beyond the BSc programme’s core learning criteria.
Units in 2018/19 included the design of a collaborative arts performance space at a new exhibition venue in Cardiff, the construction of short term emergency shelters for rough sleepers (sponsored by FINSA UK), and the development of ideas for the revitalisation of a historic lido, to capture the hearts and minds of a local community in Bristol.
