Event video
Thu 2 Dec 2021
Part of Shaping Space

Join the V&A, Building Centre and Manchester School of Architecture for an engaging careers session for sixth form students on different architectural careers pathways.



The V&A and Building Centre have collaborated on the curation of Shaping Space, an exhibition that celebrates the role of architectural models in shaping the spaces we live in. As part of an exciting educational outreach programme, designed to inspire and engage the curiosity of young people, we will be hosting an in person and online informative event exploring potential careers in architecture.

On the 2nd December join senior lecturer Matt Ault and model maker Scott Miller from Manchester School of Architecture, who will talk to potential undergraduates and sixth formers that are interested in studying architecture at university.

Matt Ault, formerly Associate at Foster + Partners in London, specialises in large, complex, design projects and has worked internationally on high-end projects of all scales, sectors and design stages. Scott studied at the Arts University Bournemouth. Subsequently he worked as a professional modelmaker and now leads the B.15 Modelmaking Workshop at The University of Manchester.

The evening will be introduced by Simona Valeriani of the V&A’s Research Institute (VARI), and co-curator of the Shaping Space exhibition. 


This event is open to students and young people. 



This event is part of the Shaping Space: Architectural Models in Context project, funded by the AHRC, led by the V&A and the Building Centre.
