    Architectural Assistant at SALT Architects

    Hull, United Kingdom

I am a student of Architecture currently situated in Hull on my Part 1 work experience year out. I completed my first 3 years of study at the Hull School of Art & Design, achieving a 2:1 and have since begun working full time at SALT Architects in Beverley. I have experience in architectural projects, landscape and building surveys, scale model building, interior design, product design, and CAD 3-D modelling. Architecture for me is primarily about people and place. As an ever growing student of architecture I strive to produce architecture that is site specific and sensitive to human interaction. I seek to explore a methodology that is not determined by an aesthetic or a pre-conceived style but derives from an understanding of sense of place and seeks to provide an environment that works hard to integrate into this. The language of architecture changes as its means and ends evolve. I feel obliged to take part in this evolution. For me, it is a journey into the unknown territory of experimentation.

    The Hull School of Architecture is a newly formed architecture school set up in the confines of The Hull School of Art and Design (HSAD) The programme is effectively a resurrection of the Hull School of Architecture degree. The course has received ARB prescription and received backing from both the RIBA’s regional branch and Arc, and is currently seeking RIBA validation. I worked on a variety of projects as an RIBA part 1 student for 3 years. Projects ranged in scale and detail and were all based locally. Projects included redevelopments of Withernsea Promenade, Hull Fruit Market, Hull Marina and Hull city River Corridor with buildings ranging from Poetry Libraries to a Boat Club, a Transport Interchange and A refurbishment of the old RANK Flour Mills.
