Summer Exhibition showcases an impressive portfolio of work
1 July 2019
On 21 June the Welsh School of Architecture hosted an evening of celebration to mark the opening of the Summer Exhibition.
This annual student-led event showcases the wide variety of work from students across Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in the School. Work presented included a fascinating project from MArch1 students on their ideas for a new centre of music at Llandaff Cathedral and a 3D representation of weather data in London using the Grasshopper Model fabricated using the School’s Kuka Robot.
Head of School, Professor Chris Tweed said: "The School is immensely proud of its students. The quality of the work is exceptional. They have organised and curated this exhibition, showing the kind of leadership skills that are desperately needed to make the world a better place. We can all learn from them, and that’s how it should be."
Members of the public from all over the world came to view the varying portfolio of work presented at the exhibition, much of which was created to demonstrate architectural reactions to a variety of real-world issues and contexts. A London Practitioner who came to visit the exhibition said: “I did take a long look at the exhibition, which I have to say is really excellent – impressive to see so much talent exhibited – and the atmosphere, energy & enthusiasm amongst the students and visitors was inspiring.”
Units presented to the public included; Liveable Urbanism, Environmental Imagination, Value, Craft, Local Adaptation, Healthy Communities and Infrastructure Urbanism. The exhibition opened on the 21 June in Bute Building and is open for viewing until the 16 July 2019.
