RIBA | Student Mentoring Programme 2020-21

For the third consecutive year, CZWG is proud to be mentoring architecture students as part of the annual programme facilitated by RIBA.

Every academic year RIBA partners with Schools of Architecture to deliver the programme, bringing practices into education to support the next generation.

This year we will welcome Emily Cater, Ksenia Lenina, Darryl Scott and Charissa Turner, four students in the 3rd year of their degree course at the University of Creative Arts Canterbury. The mentoring sessions will run entirely online.

Associate Sonja Karapiperidis said, “Like many practices, the pandemic has seen CZWG adopt video conferencing and other online communication tools. This has brought an unexpected interactive dimension to the way that we can present information and communicate our approach and ideas – to clients and collaborators, or in this case with the students.”

Although a site visit will not be possible, CZWG uses 360 CGI images and panoramic building tours or ‘fly throughs’ using 3D Enscape to recreate and visualise our designs.

The students will also have a one-on-one session with two of our architectural assistants, Nancy Marrs and Pippa McLeod-Brown. In previous years, students have fed back that the practical advice and experiences shared by our Part I and Part IIs were invaluable.

We look forward to welcoming you, Emily, Ksenia, Darryl and Charissa!
