Skills Bazaars 2019-2020

News

In 2019-2020 QUB Architecture hosted several Skills Bazaars, which were an opportunity to share and celebrate architectural skills, bringing BSc and MArch students together within an informal context. A range of short talks, seminars and practical workshops were held over four events during the year. The Skills Bazaars programme was coordinated by Dr Chantelle Niblock.

Students critiqued and explored different media and workflows used for architectural thinking and the representation of ideas, including: sketching, orthographic drawing, model making, concrete casting, prototyping, watercolour, thesis design, and dissertation writing.

The seminars were largely student-led, with a handful of inspirational talks and specialist workshops led by academics and technical staff at the School of Natural and Built Environment.
