5. Architecture Virtual Degree Show 2o21


This July, we’re pleased to announce the return of the Architecture Virtual Degree Show. Due to go live on the 16th, the show is an opportunity for students to showcase their creativity and talent, and to celebrate their achievements over the course of their degree programme. Last year, the team paired up with V21 Artspace to bring us a full virtual 3D experience which users could glide around at their own leisure and visualise the students' impressive work, all from the comforts of their own home. Last year's show was a complete success and we are sure this year will be no different.
