As part of the innovative RIBA Student Mentoring scheme organised by the team at RIBA South West Forge Design Studio have been hosting students from Year 3 of the Architecture Course at University of the West of England.
We will be holding 3 sessions, with the first two being held in the studio. David, Petra and Olympia have had the chance to meet the team and to gain a greater understanding of the office procedures and working practices.
Loretta has been showing them a number of projects and they’ve had the chance to exercise their knowledge in a number of real life scenarios which we have set ….. The Honeywood Files are not dead!!!
Also joining us has been Simone Ulyate a second year student from Arts University Bournemouth studying Interior Architecture and Design. Simone will be with us for 10 weeks and has already settled in well. She has worked on the North Brook End House application and has been actively involved in co-ordinating the application.
The photographs show part of the initiation ceremony which all visitors to the office have to endure ……. the traditional communal lunch!!
Forge Design Studio hosted a Spring Lunch on Friday 31st March.
We’ve never seen the studio busier as the guests enjoyed catching up on our latest projects, meeting the team and sampling one of our famous home-cooked lunches. The sun shone and it was great to see the garden being used.
It was also a great opportunity for everyone to meet the Connected Collective as Adrian, David, Jeff and Nicola all managed to come along. The Collective are working on their first opportunities together and are looking forward to seeking out new projects.
