Design and Build 2016

Working at Westonbirt Arboretum, 24 students took part in the University of Bath’s second ‘Design and Build’ project, from 3rd - 7th June 2016.

The students led the design and construction of two concept structures, built in the arboretum using material sourced from the arboretum. This project provides our students with unique ‘hands-on’ experience of the design and construction process. It is also great fun!

Many thanks to Andrew Smith for allowing all this to happen and for providing access to the arboretum, and to our expert tutors for their valuable assistance.
