Architectural Technology year 2 students presented their first semester final presentations on 11th of December.
Year 2 students have been assigned to work on a site located in the very heart of Northampton, the Market Square. They were to propose a multifunctional building which would encompass a Library, Cafe/Shop, Residential element and any other function they deemed necessary after gathering research.
Each student was to prepare two presentation boards and conduct a 5 minute presentation with 10 minute commentary from guest critics.
The project is a two semester project and the first semester was orientated around establishing a design proposal. Th second semester will mainly focus on developing the technical side of the project as well as resolving any unresolved design issues.
Below is a preview of the work produced:
We look forward to seeing completed projects by end of May 2016.
