On the 5th of december a former student named, Matthew Morris came and gave us a talk about how his studies here at Esher have led to him working at top architectural companies. He was a designer at Heatherwick Studios and an architectural assistant at Grimshaw Architects. He showed us some of the few projects he has worked on which ranged from designing the metro system in Abu Dhabi to a walkway project in Shanghai. To negotiate the brief he meets the paying customers and listens to their requirments and potential design and then works alongside another achitect to create the potential idea. Depending on the size of the project, it will vary on the number of architects and assitants needed. To create the designs they initially sketch a few ideas and then process into a 3D design software programme and visualise it.
