Arup and Leonard Design Architects, teamed up with Scale Rule to inspire the next generation of engineers, architects and designers across Nottinghamshire.
Scale Rule is a social enterprise which aims to benefit young people interested in the built environment, but also promotes diversity and better representation within the industry. This scheme has engaged local students in year 9 and 10 and has provided them with the opportunity to be directly involved in a real-life construction project from start to finish.
Arup and Leonard Design Architects arranged and ran a weekend workshop on 14-15th July 2018 at the Nottingham Trent University (NTU) city campus. The weekend included a mix of short talks about architecture and engineering and a number of interactive exercises including design, drawing, and model making, with an emphasis on teamwork.
