NBHP Workshop Summary
This week, our students have been getting to grips with the fabulous world of design (more so leaning towards fashion), delving deep into the archives of iconoclastic designer Vivienne Westwood. Renowned for her witty, irreverent style, Westwood had been a significant influence on the fashion world since the 1970s, inspiring countless designers with her playful approach and daring designs.
The students have also been exploring the work of Amin Taha, a rising star in architecture, whose innovative approach has won him critical acclaim. In a fascinating twist, the students were challenged to apply their newfound knowledge to real-world problems, using their creativity to design flood-resistant houses that could withstand even the most extreme weather conditions.
It's been a thrilling journey of discovery for these young designers, and it was a pleasure teaching and witnessing their creative outcomes. I can't wait to see what they come up with next week!
