Spring 2024


Architecture went to London for their study trip this year. We visited architecture studios, museums, buildings, and of course a few pubs along the way.

The architecture we saw ranged from the historic – such as John Soane’s masterwork – The Soane Museum; through to brutalist post-war housing, such as The Barbican Estate; up to contemporary feats of engineering, such as the Leadenhall building – a skyscraper in the heart of London. We also had a tour of The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, where we heard about architectural education in the UK, and visited their cutting-edge workshops and studio spaces.

We visited the architecture studio RSH+P, which was started by the renowned British architect Richard Rogers in the 80s, as well as Assemble Studios (a much younger collective, who have a focus on community involvement).

As Rosa (one of the architecture teachers) is from London, we finished the week off with a cosy drinks party at her parent’s eccentric house, which was designed by a female artist in 1900. We played piano, talked about our experiences from the week, and got to know each other a little better.
