RGU Architecture students showcase innovative work at End of Year show

The Robert Gordon University (RGU) Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment end of year show is set to address high-level issues, with students proposing novel solutions and ideas in a variety of real scenarios.

The event, which runs from Saturday, June 15 to Saturday, June 22, is open to the public and will showcase the best work of Architecture and Architectural Technology students, reflecting the broad spectrum of activities undertaken within the school.

The public will be able to view the students’ work and concepts around the redevelopment of Aberdeen Harbour, novel solutions to nationwide housing issues, and proposals for boosting the tourism industry in Orkney through architectural interventions.

The End of Year Show offers a unique chance for the members of the public and industry to have a glimpse into studio life, taking in a variety of exhibitions, models and videos created by the students.

Professor David McClean, Head of the Scott Sutherland School, commented:

“On display are a broad range of design projects that ably demonstrate the high calibre of our students, as well as the sophisticated skills they develop that make them highly sought after by employers.”

“The end of year show gives you the opportunity to see work which achieves a refined balance between imagination and realism, a balance that renders work progressive and inspiring, yet also credible and compelling.”

“As a school we are interested in addressing real scenarios and conditions, exploring these with creativity and rigour. It is this focus that equips our graduates to make an impact and lasting contribution to our professions, our industry, our communities and to society.”

The 2019 End of Year Show will take place in the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment in the Sir Ian Wood Building and is open from 8am to 10pm weekdays and 10am to 6pm at the weekend.
