BA (Hons) Architectural Design and Technology
During the three years at Solent I was able to work in different groups of classmates, and what I enjoyed most is the fact that, although we are all different ages and races, and have different religions, cultures and experiences, we love sharing. Exchanging opinions, coming up with creative projects together, and working in a team are fundamental as in the world of architecture and construction people work collaboratively with others. I enjoyed the humility, the openness, and the deep passionate sharing of knowledge of the tutors. All the professors are extremely friendly – they support each student in achieving the best academic performance and help us to create a career development plan with CVs and portfolios.
Thanks to Solent University and the guest lectures, I developed rewarding relationships. I’m enthusiastic to participate in the CIAT Award 2019 and apply to an architectural practice.
My advice for other students is to enjoy their time at university as much as they can. It’s not just about studying and surviving the exams – it’s about learning with fun, connecting with people from all over the world and achieving your own personal growth and development. Success is achieved step-by-step, so do the best that you can – work hard – as the rewarding and satisfying day of graduation is closer than you think.
For my final major project, I realised a Titanic Museum and Recreation Centre. The proposed development is situated in Southampton, in the popular waterside Mayflower Park, next to the dock where the Titanic embarked in 1912. The client, Southampton City Council, was keen to promote an acknowledgement of Titanic’s history, as the tragedy eventually defined the history of the city too. The Titanic Museum and Recreation Centre aims to become the new iconic landmark of Southampton, with an imposing and impacting design which will contribute to honouring the memory of the deceased and, at the same time, symbolise the famous cruise ships that are making history in the Port of Southampton. Many different facilities and services have been designed in order to guarantee an enjoyable experience for both residents and visitors of all ages and interests.
