Haworth Tompkins is an award-winning architectural studio with an international reputation for intelligent, purposeful design. The studio works throughout the public, private and subsidised sectors on a wide spectrum of projects ranging from theatrical and culturally oriented buildings, to housing, higher education, and industrial buildings. We pay close attention to the specific chemistry of individual places and cultural situations, seeking to understand both the context and possible future life of our clients’ buildings - a process which often yields original or unconventional design solutions.

During our Work Experience Programme, you will be set in groups and our friendly members of staff will meet with you twice daily to go through a variety of tasks and projects. You will have the opportunity to attend a career path session with our student architects to discuss the best routes to architecture. You can expect to gain knowledge about the various roles of an architect, the different stages of a project, learn about some of the software we use and have a go at designing yourself!

We are looking forward to seeing you online!
