Georgia has a brush with the best at Architectural Summer School

We have some brilliant news following Georgia H being selected for the prestigious Architectural summer school at Hauser and Wirth Somerset in the early summer.

Back in June, Georgia, who is now in U6th, was selected from a competitive field to participate in the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust and Kingston University Architectural Drawing Summer School. This one-week, all expenses paid residential course focused on architectural sketching and drawing, whilst also offering students an insight into the study of architecture and the architectural profession. 

On Thursday the 29th of August on a late summer’s afternoon, the Open Review of work produced by participating students was exhibited at Hauser and Wirth Somerset. Students presented their work to the public and invited those present ‘Into’ spaces that they had created. 

Through discussions with Georgia about the experience, it is evident that she feels that she participated in a really exciting, challenging and formative week, that has had a real impact on her thoughts about architecture, buildings and drawing. She also really enjoyed meeting young people from across the country with similar interests, sharing ideas and working on collaborative creative tasks. 

She said: ‘The experience was certainly uplifting and inspiring. I really enjoyed spending time with like-minded people who were evidently interested in the same concepts and theories of architecture. It was amazing to work with professional architects and professors as they explained their own experiences of the profession, whilst also teaching us different techniques and approaches’ 

What an amazing summer for Georgia and best of luck for her next year at Clayesmore.
