ICAT Student Competition – Aberdeen

Another trip with Nottingham Trent University, this one to Aberdeen to attend the International Conference on Architectural Technologists (ICAT) held at Robert Gordon University.

A1 Board - ICAT

One of our first projects this year was a live project with the New Meadows Residents and Tenants Association and the Queens Walk Recreation Pavilion volunteer staff. In groups, we worked with the first and second year architectural technology students to design a scheme to improve the pavilion architecturally and socially with a limited budgets. From this, the three most successful groups were nominated for the ICAT student award. Above is my group’s finished presentation board, which was designed to be displayed with no introduction or explanation.
