The academic year may have just started but Architectural Technology and Interior Design Advanced Diploma students already have their first exhibition under the belt.

In the block week the first cohort enrolled for the new blended Advanced Diploma programmes, used freehand techniques to map Cape Town cityscapes in a marathon 18-hour project.

The work is on display at The Architect pop-up gallery at 71 Hout Street in the city centre. Lecturers Imraan Begg and Wendy-Anne Press co-ordinated the project.

Advanced Diploma Programme coordinators Jolanda Morkel and Colleen Cocotos state that the opening of the exhibition was held on February 6 and that it was a great success.“We appreciate the opportunity to welcome our working students in a professional and inspiring environment and to showcase their work, and we wish to express our gratitude to CIfA (The Cape Institute for Architecture) for their continued support,” said Morkel.

The new programmes build on the successful blended part-time BTech pilot offered by CPUT in collaboration with SAIA's Open Architecture from 2014 to 2019.

Both qualifications replacing the former BTech programmes, are only offered part-time and blended, over two years - comprising quarterly block release, online learning and office-based mentoring.

In year one, students register for Practice, Literacy and Environment subjects (50 credits, comprising approximately 50% shared Architectural and Interior Design learning experiences), and Design and Technology subjects (70 credits) are completed in year two.

*The exhibition can be viewed from 11 am to 4 pm until February 14.
