A-Level Architecture Talks

On Friday the 4th of November A level students studying Product Design & The Built Environment had the opportunity to meet two highly regarded Architects. Jennifer Dixon (Architecture Lead) For AECOM ( One of the Worlds Largest Architecture and Infrastructure Companies), and Mark Elton Director for Cowen Eco Design and UK Specialist for Passivhaus and sustainable design. 14 dedicated students came to college on their day off to listen to talks by both, about their experiences in the industry followed by a question and answer session which was very enlightening.

Both Jennifer and Mark were invited to review 2nd year architectural projects and give highly valued feedback to the students, last year Jennifer also helped organise a once in a life time visit to Grimshaws Architectural practice in NYC where students where able to see some of the worlds leading architectural projects happening in real time.

When asked to comment about the student’s work Jennifer said ” The outputs in the studio and the level of design thinking are clearly well beyond the normal expectations of an A level study program” Mark Elton when asked the same reflected the positive comments made by his peer adding “Having been invited to Truro to review students’ progress on the architecture module led by Sean Dugan, I was delighted to also get the chance to introduce them to the Passivhaus design standard as well. I was really impressed with their awareness of the issues surrounding sustainable design and the ambition of their projects. For those students wishing to advance to architectural careers, this course will give them an incredible foundation for the challenges facing them in architecture school. Gwrys yn ta pubonan! / Well done everyone!”
