Running from 12 June to 4 July, OPEN 2014, part of the London Festival of Architecture, displays student work from Westminster’s undergraduate Architecture and Interiors courses, and the Master of Architecture (MArch) RIBA Part 2 course. The shows gives an insight to the rich diversity of our studio system, students’ dissertations, and a glimpse of what Fab Lab West, Westminster’s new fabrication laboratory, will bring next year. On 12 June, the exhibition was opened by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Westminster, Professor Geoff Petts.
Open in parallel, the Architectural Technology end of year exhibition displays work from the Architectural Technology BSc course at Westminster. On 12 June, the Architectural Technology exhibition was opened by Karl Grace, President of the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists, who presented an Outstanding Student Award to Architectural Technology student, Hugh O’Connor.
The exhibitions at Westminster’s Marylebone Campus have been featured on Building Design as part of its celebration of the best student work of 2014.
