Hey! I’m Jack! I previously studied at the Portsmouth School of Architecture before moving too London to gain two years of professional experience. I am now studying my masters at the Manchester School of Architecture, in the &rchitecture atelier. I am passionate about the role of heritage in the built environment with the inclusion of sustainable design, and enjoy sketching both in and outside of my work.

Alfred Waterhouse was the English architect of Manchester Town Hall.

Waterhouse was born in Liverpool and educated in Tottenham, London, before starting his architectural education under the architect, Richard Lane in Manchester. Turing this time Waterhouse took an interest in the writings of John Ruskin and Augustus Pugin, two figures who had greatly influenced the Gothic-Revival style of architecture, which Waterhouse later practiced.

Waterhouse won the competition to design the Manchester Town Hall, through his proposal using his signature watercolor painted perspective technique.

Due to many questions from the BA students about our MArch’s experience during their time in professional practice, we decided to alter our schedule to allow for some time to discuss and answer questions about this.

We covered our job hunting experiences, general roles and tasks in the office, the various programmes and skills we used, and some tips on future networking and socialising with your work colleagues.

Re-Use Future Ambitions…

Having concluded our research and design project with a strong understanding of the importance of reducing, re-using and recycling construction ‘waste’ materials, we would recommend that a material re-use framework is further researched, developed and implemented into legislation across the design and construction process controlling our built environment.

We have learnt that the re-use of perceived ‘waste’ materials, can be of a huge benefit to our built environment and its environmentally friendly ambitions, cutting down landfill waste and the manufacturing of harmful and single-use materials.

We perceive this framework to be flexible and adaptable to any context or material, dealing with all forms of architecture, from temporary structures to the conservation of heritage landmarks.
