Woods Bagot Work Experience
I just spent a week commuting into London everyday, to do a week of work experience at an architectural firm called Woods Bagot. I got there and it was all complete mayhem because their normal offices had had a big technical problem meaning all the computers had started exploding! So I was sent to their other offices in Southwark; I was working with some architects who are currently desgning a skyscraper to be built in Bishopsgate. It was fascinating to see how a building is designed, but to be honest, seeing the photoshopped images was the best; you had to constantly remind yourself that the building didn't actually exist! By wednesday I could go back to the original office on Oxford Street. They are working on the first 7 star hotel in Spain, to be built on the coast, and I was helping to design the beach bar/club. I got to work on photoshop as well which I loved! And obviously, being situated on Oxford Street had it's benefits!
