Live projects and consulting

You will have the opportunity to engage with industry professionals, clients and partner organisations on the development and resolution of live projects throughout the course. Our students have engaged in the following ‘live’ projects – following the RIBA Plan of Works (from Consultation, Design to Construction, Handover and In Use). Some of these ‘live’ projects include:

Our BA Architecture Year 2 and 3 students started the year being asked to redesign two key cafes on campus – the café in the Roland Levinsky Building, the ‘home’ of the school of architecture, and to the Reservoir Café, which is to the north end of the Campus of the University of Plymouth. The brief was to consider greater connections between the outside spaces. There were 11 entries for this project. All entries were judged by the estates team, with the winning scheme being a proposal for the Roland Levinsky Café.
