Architecture Students Have Been Commissioned To Construct Their Design at Liverpool Docks
Salford University students have been commissioned by Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to design an installation on Liverpool Waterfront.
In November students from the North West schools of architecture were invited to come together for a one day design charrette at Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Students were tasked with working in studio teams to design the RIBA Christmas installation in and around their head office at Mann Island, Liverpool.
Abby Cassady, founding president of The Architechnique society, explains: “The University of Liverpool won the competition, however the judges were equally as impressed with the Salford team's design and so decided to award us Highly Commended and split the budget between the two Universities so we can each complete part of our design as well as collaborating a cohesive design together.
Our design was liked by the judges for our 'snowflake cities' concept. We decided to focus on Liverpool being one of the trading capitals of the world and represented the cities it trades with, by using the different cities street maps as snowflakes.”
