Architecture Site Visits
Architecture students were treated to tours around some of Leeds’ most interesting construction sites in the week commencing 15 October.
Lectures in the Technology modules for all year groups of the undergraduate BA (Hons) and postgraduate Master of Architecture were moved into the city with seven construction sites of differing scales, technical approaches and level of completion opening their doors to provide a fantastic hands on learning experience.
Students enjoyed guided tours of The Majestic, Leeds Arts University, Leeds University’s Newlyn Building, 33 Wellington St, Spenfield Court, Symonds House Student Accommodation and the West Yorkshire Playhouse renovation. Special thanks are extended to all collaborators including Sir Robert McAlpine Construction, DLA Design, DLG Architects, Evora Construction, RG Group, BAM Construction and Actavo Construction.
Craig Stott (MEng, BArch, MA, ARB) is a Project Office co-director, Architect and Senior Architecture Lecturer at the Leeds School of Architecture, Leeds Beckett University.
