Tutoring the architects of tomorrow
Filippo Rezzonico, Mark Whitby and Scott Lewis have been spending some time at the Bartlett School of Architecture and at the University of East London (UEL) in the Architecture department, talking to students about structural engineering.
Mark is a visiting professor at the Bartlett, a role he has adopted at various universities throughout his career. He runs lecture courses for architecture students in which he outlines key structural principles relevant to an architect, and shares experiences and stories from his career.
At UEL, Filippo and Scott participated in tutorials. They reviewed the structural considerations of students’ projects involving a variety of building types on several different sites. It was amazing to see the creativity and bold thinking that the students expressed, as well as the gratitude, as we assisted with some structural forms for their projects.
It was extremely rewarding being part of the process of shaping future architects and we are looking forward to taking part again.
