World Of Work Week at the Practice

29 May 2024

Last week as part of our “World of Work Week” work placement programme we welcomed students, Alicia, and Fraser to provide them with a small taste of working an architectural practice.

Both Alicia and Fraser have a strong interest in architecture, design, sketching and art with both considering a future career in architecture.

In our Dumfries studio, Alicia who is a talented baker used her knowledge in this area to design a contemporary cookery school/kitchen/café extension to an existing building, demonstrating her design, artistic and creative skills throughout the week and she will no doubt have a bright future in architecture, design, and baking!

In our Glasgow studio, Fraser prepared a 3D computer model of a new Sports Hall and Gym design, and explored the way the building will sit in the landscape and accommodate the gym equipment and various basketball, badminton, and five-a-side courts. The resulting design was impressive!

We were delighted we could provide Alicia and Fraser the opportunity to learn about the course and profession with our recent Architectural Graduates and newly qualified Architects sharing their experiences with them.

All at Robert Potter and Partners wish Alicia and Fraser the best for their future and look forward to seeing their design skills develop!
