Join us for an Open Review coinciding with the end of the third Architectural Drawing Summer School. At the session, visitors will have the chance to meet staff and students, and view the work and drawings produced on the course.
Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to be taking part in its third Architectural Drawing Summer School, organised by the Royal Fine Art Commission Trust in association with Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Drawing Matter, Kingston School of Art, Queen’s University Belfast and Bruton School for Girls. The week-long course is a unique opportunity for A-level students who have an interest in architecture and the built environment to learn more about the subject at a fully funded summer school.
The course will enable students to explore in detail how the built environment has been shaped by countless interests over many generations. Through conversation with, and activities set by, leading practitioners in architectural education, they will gain valuable insight about how professional architects record what they see, how this information connects to the buildings they produce and how the process of drawing can be used to test and develop an idea.
With thanks to the generous support of this year’s sponsors: B2 Architects, Peter Wilson, Christ and Gantenbein, Eric Parry, Hauser & Wirth Somerset, Keith Williams Architects, Moxon Architects, Niall Mclaughlin Architects, Publica and Tony Fretton Architects.
The Open Review will take place in the Radić Pavilion at Hauser & Wirth Somerset. This is a free event that is open to the public, however booking is recommended.
