Graduates 2022: Manar Abu-Aisheh: Architecture BA(Hons)
“Brighton has a balance between the creative and technical aspect of architecture which I really enjoyed. Through this I developed a deeper knowledge of the technology of my designs along with incorporating sustainability and the RIBA 2030 challenge onto my designs, giving me a sense of the type of work I’ll be involved in when I become a qualified architect.”
