Co- and extra-curricular initiatives in collaboration with the Civic Trust Awards
The School is grateful to the Civic Trust Awards for offering the opportunity to nine of our MArch students (Year 4) to take part in assessments for this year’s awards. Six students will be joining a jury looking at three projects in Liverpool – including the Everyman Theatre, this year’s winner of the Stirling Prize! - and three students will be joining a jury looking at three projects in the Wirral. Each jury consisted of an architect assessor, a universal design assessor and a community advisor, the Wirral jury will also include a local authority representative.
This initiative is repeated for the second year running, following last year’s very complementary comments both from the CTA assessors and our students.
Further collaboration with the Civic Trust Awards includes an exercise as part of last year’s BA2 studio ‘Inhabitable Space’ in semester two. As a result, we are very proud to have our students’ work invited for inclusion in the CTA’s website and made available to view by other students, members of the public, practitioners, professionals and other users of the site – all with an interest in the built environment.
The school aims to continue working in collaboration with CTA in the following years and to expand this initiative to other built environment awards.
