Rikki and Derek have both been involved with Design Reviews at the Architecture Department, University of Strathclyde this month.

Rikki was invited to guest on the review panels for the 3rd Year Urban Housing Project, which challenged students to develop masterplan and detail design proposals for medium density housing in the East End of Glasgow. The project forms a significant portion of the RIBA Assessment Criteria for the Part 1 exemption and submission requirements included structural principles, strategic, environmental solutions and architectural space making.

Derek, in his role as Studio Design Tutor, reviewed the 1st Year "Room with a View" project which encourages students to consider a single volume space with a direct link to its rural context brought about by the creation of a specific aperture and resultant view. This project was presented as the main focus of an Exhibition of the full portfolio of Semester 1 work.
