This year we took part in the RIBA south east mock interview event for the third year running. This year the event was held with Brighton Universities’s third and fifth-year architecture students. The interviews this year were held at Brighton’s Priory street building in Hastings, which has fantastic views across to Hastings old town, the cliffs and the sea. The event was a great success and we thoroughly enjoyed taking part again and helping the students.
The end of year show was held on the RIBA Stirling prize-winning Hastings Pier immediately after the interviews. We took part in the opening of the show which was a great opportunity to see the work on display. The standard of work in the show was very high with an interesting mix of projects. It was also great fun to spend time on Hastings Pier in the sun, which coincidently we were part of the RIBA judging panel at the regional awards stage, prior to the Stirling prize win.
