Architectural practice plans from NTU students

BArch (Hons) Architecture students put on an exhibition of Business Plans for Architectural Practices that they have been working on this term as part of their 'Professional Practice' module.

BArch (Hons) Architecture students put on an exhibition of Business Plans for Architectural Practices that they have been working on this term as part of their 'Professional Practice' module. There were 18 individual displays from different groups outlining their strategic plans, unique selling points and financial predictions.

Some of the students work looked into solving the housing crises in ways that are both economical and environmentally stable with others looking to push toward creating a more communal and neighbourly approach between architects and homeowners.

Final year student Claire Bicknell said: "Our project entailed creating a five year strategic plan for a fictional business set in 2021. We developed WorldCraft Studios after predicting market trends of the future and identifying a niche in the market for Temporary Sustainable Architecture, meaning buildings that can be created and reused over and over for events in the community or by private businesses. We also work with charities to aid in problems that occur in the local area, for example creating small huts out of our waste materials that provide relief for the homeless."

Visitors, including members of industry, were welcome to come to the exhibition to learn more about the projects and could even mark their work based on the students work.

More information on some of the students work can be found on some of the students websites.
