Graduates 2021: Harry Harwood: MArch

I feel like Architecture chooses you. It is a long process, high stress, with many hoops to become an architect – 7 years minimum.

Please tell us a bit about your work and your influences?

Not surprisingly, my work this year focused on how architecture would respond to a post-pandemic existence. The proposal turns to the ideology of 1920’s Constructivists that brought us the Social Condenser project; buildings that had the ambition to support and accelerate people’s lives through sport, culture, and education.

How have you found your course and time at Brighton?

I studied my undergrad and post-grad at UoB. I enjoyed my first experience so much I came back for another round and was not disappointed.  With this past year being the first-ever entirely virtual studio, I found the experience enjoyable, engaging and successful.

How did you choose your course – why did you choose to study Architecture?

I feel like Architecture chooses you. It is a long process, high stress, with many hoops to become an architect – 7 years minimum. So you have to make decisions that benefit you for the long-term, find a university and a course where you feel comfortable and supported, allowing you to thrive. For me, this has always been the UoB.

What are your plans after graduation?

I have already received offers from plenty of firms following the end of year show awards I received. I plan to accept an offer where I find a firm that aligns with my values and ideas of workplace cultures. From there, I’ll look to complete my RIBA part 3, which will allow me to finally and legally become an architect!
