Last week I was given the opportunity to act as an external critic for the first year BA Architecture students at Westminster (Group C). The brief, ‘Mind the Gap’, challenged them to design a building for two different clients, independently selected by the students. Their proposals were to accommodate the needs of both clients and fit within a small, designated site in Bermondsey, London. Below are a few images from the day.
