We welcomed some very special visitors to our Bath office recently, who brought with them lots of great ideas and plenty of questions!
Our visitors were four children from Widcombe Junior School, who visited the Nash Partnership office as part of a special school competition prize.
The school’s Year 5 students have been working on an eco-town project, culminating in a competition which was judged by our Associate Architect Paul Miller. As part of the project, Paul visited the school and spoke to the Y5 children about architecture and its link with the environment. Paul then had the tough job of whittling down their brilliant competition entries to choose winners in the categories of:
- Best SketchUp model – won by Jack
- Best physical model – won by Eva
- Best ideas (eg. green roofs, water recycling solutions) x 2 – won by Luke and Poppy
During their visit, the children found out more about the design processes and environmental considerations involved in creating a town. They also had a close look at a consultation model used for our Taunton project and watched some BIM software in use by our architects.
We really enjoyed hosting the children: well done from everyone at Nash to the four winners!
