Organised by Open City, “Accelerate is a pioneering education and mentoring programme aimed at increasing diversity in the architecture profession. It gives students the confidence and skills needed to make strong university applications to study architecture.”
An event from the 2016 programme involved students visiting The Barbican in the City of London. They spent the morning sketching and photographing buildings and internal architectural details. The afternoon was spent at The Bartlett at UCL where they created paper models from the earlier sketches and photographs.
