RSA New Contemporaries, 14 March 2015 – 08 April 2015
With the final adjustments to the exhibition being completed we look forward to the opening event this coming Friday. As Architecture Convenor, we have selected this year’s work following visits to the various Scottish Schools of Architecture. The focus of selection was on the use of models – conceptual to tectonic – in the spirit of scholarship, exploration and risk. The theme of making and crafting resonates throughout all of the works thereby offering lessons in the use of working models as a means to test ideas and establish values. The selected work is taken from the Year 5 portfolio of degree shows and represents the fine line between studying and practicing architecture; a critical stage in the development of professional skills that clearly demonstrate the aspirations and visions of a new generation of young architects.
