Work Experience Entries for RIBA Cornwall Competition

Posted on: 23/11/2015

Every summer, Great Torrington School Year 10 pupils participate in Work Experience with local employers. The Fearley Lott Architects welcomed two pupils from GTS, Owen Seward and Caitlin Knox, in the office for a week.  Throughout this time, both students worked with members of the organisation to learn what being an architect involves. 

This year, Fearnley Lott Architects gave both these pupils a chance to enter a RIBA Cornwall competition to design new beach huts.  The competition was organised and hosted by Catchfrench Design, and judged by James Cock, an RIBA Cornwall member, and four undergraduate architecture students from the University of Plymouth.  All were very impressed with the overall standard and quality of submissions which showed innovative interpretations of the brief and a good standard of overall presentation. 

Both Caitlin and Owen created their initial concept sketches, sectional drawings and floor plans using CAD software. 

We were extremely pleased to hear that both Caitlin and Owen received a superb work experience placements and received some excellent feedback from their employer about the level of work produced and their professional manner. Rebecca Fearnley RIBA, from Fearnley Lott Architects, said:  "Both Students showed real skill, and would both be able to go on and train as Architects." 

Congratulations to both students, especially Owen who achieved 2nd place in his category and received his Architectural prize.
