Due to the global pandemic we worked online this year which was difficult for all of us, but not without silver linings. We split the year into a series of shorter projects to maintain momentum beginning with an all year project designing elevations to fill gaps within the city. A film project followed, with many beautifully reflecting the absence of people within the city and architectural experience of living in isolation. Students then moved into studios for three projects. First was a small scale off grid building set in natural landscape with a focus on low energy. The second set in an urban context and the third focussed on heritage and reuse of existing buildings. The addition of a renovation project reflects the change in how we view our existing building stock and the role architects must play to reduce energy use.

For the first time in the history of the school we were excited to invite women only architects as guests to our reviews! We were also delighted to welcome guest speakers, the highlight being about Fire by Mira Hammad. Mira is a barrister on the current Grenfell case and her talk was profoundly informative and deeply sobering.

There have been many different stories and experiences this year for all of us. Some have lost family and friends, taken care of the sick, relocated or isolated. It’s not been easy but we’ve done it. As usual we would like to thank our fantastic team of tutors. We would also like to thank our guests as well as students from senior years who joined us for online student led reviews. Most of all however, we would like to thank our students.

Students, silver linings were mentioned. You learned more than we imagined possible without attending the studio. Your digital skills improved due to working online, and the change seen in your involvement in reviews has been absolutely incredible. We are really proud of you and what you have achieved despite the situation. Keep making models out of recycled materials and make sure you running reviews in future! We wish you all the very best of luck in your final year.
