2018 GHA Work Experience

July 23, 2018
Site trip to Selly Oak student housing

GHA recently hosted a group of 14 young people for the annual GHA Work Experience Workshop.

The group undertook a variety of sessions designed to give them an understanding of the architectural profession and GHA’s work. They attended project visits to Paradise and Selly Oak student accommodation (pictured above), as well as workshops in sketching, model-making, ergonomics of design, communications and presentation skills.

GHA staff of all levels were involved in the week, giving the group a fantastic insight in to the career that could lie ahead for them.

Throughout the week, the group worked with guidance from GHA staff, on the design of a new build scheme to extend and improve our ground floor gallery, meeting rooms and café space at 321 Bradford Street, Birmingham.

The workshop culminated with each student presenting their scheme, using their design development sketches and scale models, to senior staff (pictured below).

Dates and information for the 2019 Work Experience event will be released in January 2019.
