We are excited to have Shivani Suthar and Robin Simpson join us for their work experience placements.
Shivani completed her Part 1 in Architecture at Oxford School of Architecture, graduating in 2021. During her final year of undergraduate studies, she investigated ‘how strengthening an existing form of sustainable infrastructure, the canal, can help reduce the social stigma that currently exists between the canal boat community and locals.’ At Gort Scott, Shivani is using her understanding of placemaking, sustainability and context-led design to work on the Oxford Covered Market masterplan for Oxford City Council.
Robin has been with us for the last three weeks as part of a shared placement with Free Haus Design to broaden his experience and understanding of practice. He has been helping with delivery of stage 4 visuals as part of the Three Mills Studios regeneration project as well as using previous experience in helping to specify materials. Robin is currently in the final year of his Part I at London Met and has been working with Farsight.ai and artist Lawrence Lek as a digital artist and world builder. He recently won an award as part of London Met Accelerator - Big Idea Tech category for his Open Art digital galleries project and will be delivering his first exhibition with curators Thorp Stavri later this year.
