What is A + C and what do we do?

A + C is a company that was created for design students in the UK. These are students in architecture that find opposition finding work in practice anywhere in the world. Our aim is to be the company that plays as a bridge between Architectural School and Practice. We help students build up extraordinary portfolios whereby we take part in design competitions worldwide. This allows students to work in teams, collaborate, time management, learn new skills, etc. We are set up for real-life projects as well as exploring design through competitions.

Having Won Low Rise Housing Ideas for Los Angeles in 2021 and getting to the final shortlist for the Segenal Elementry School in 2020, has allowed us to be different in terms of giving young people opportunities to still pursue their architectural goals no matter the obstacles. As of March 2020 last year, we did 12 competitions in 7 months and the first competition we did was the RIBA Network rail

Re-imaging railway stations with a team of 12, the team was made up of Part 1s, Part 2s, and 2 ARB Architects.
