CAT’s Architecture Professional Diploma students celebrate the end of their studies with a private view of their work and a party at CAT on 20th January.

This unique event invites industry VIPs, students, local people and friends of CAT to view the final projects of these up-and-coming architects after 18 months of intensive study. Transforming study rooms into exhibition spaces their inspirational designs and models will be available to view with the students themselves on-hand to talk guests through their visions. This will be a unique insight into the ideas of the architects of our future.

Fifth year architecture student Matt Redding is excited about the work being open for public view. He said,

“Our end of year show should be a thing of beauty. Our work will demonstrate how to use traditional materials in a modern way, how to use existing buildings in a modern way and how to fit this into a range of different briefs that can excite and inspire.”

2017 Architecture Prof Dips

 

In conjunction with University of East London this Professional Diploma in Architecture has been delivered by the Graduate School of the Environment at CAT and attracts students with a passion for designing eco-buildings of the future. At a time when the world is in transition the vision of these environmentally conscious architects could contribute to how building design challenges the sustainability debate.

CAT’s architecture professional diploma programme leader John Carter said about the course,

“What you will see, writ large, in CAT’s architecture student’s work is a commitment to an imperative – sustainable architecture; not sustainability as a ‘bolt on’, but sustainability as the very foundations of the designing and making of an architecture that will stand the tests of time and with respect for planet Earth and it’s ecosystems.”

To mark the occasion there will be live music from not one but two Welsh bands, The Street Band and Honey Fungus, playing into the night and CAT’s bar will be serving drinks so join the celebration of local talents and the future of eco-architectural design.

Guests are invited to join the students to view their work from 7pm with bands starting at 8pm. Entry to the exhibition is free and tickets for the evening’s live music is £5 available from Becky Bambry becky.bambry@cat.org.uk or on the door.

If you can’t make it to the private view there is a chance to view the work on Saturday 21st January, 10am – 1pm.
