First-year students from Engineering & Architectural Design MEng (ARB/RIBA Part 1 CIBSE JBM) will exhibit eight temporary pavilions in a parade to celebrate Carnival in its all forms.

These projects are a culmination of their Design Make Live module, which is a microcosm for the construction industry and serves as a test bed for more detailed individual learning and critical inquiry.
