Design Studio  05, a design studio formed by Westminster Architecture undergraduates and led by tutors Camilla Wilkinson and Emma Perkin, have been invited by James Romero, Imperial College Research Events Officer, to exhibit their first Semester work at the Imperial Festival 2017 on 6-7 May.
The exhibition will present their project ‘Indoor Weather’, a speculative pavilion design, produced exclusively for the Imperial Festival. Participants were asked to design an environment to showcase scientific research and encourage dialogue between scientists and visitors at the Festival. Undergraduates were free to choose their research area, the scale of project and the location within the Festival site.
With the support from the Quintin Hogg Trust 125 Fund, Westminster students have had the opportunity to work on the production of this exhibit of drawings and models and produce a catalogue for the Festival.
One of the students, part of this project, said: “It was a difficult project to do alongside our second year modules. However, this experience has helped the team appreciate the importance of teamwork and communication when striving for a common goal. Through our communication, we were able to share ideas and links when it came to finding the resources we needed to get the actual project done, and through doing this, we were also able to wisely manage the funding that we were given. Finally, it was a great opportunity to be involved with a client. We are excited to receive his feedback.”
