During his studies on the BA (Hons) Architecture (RIBA Part 1 Exemption) course, Adam Nuttall spent two weeks in practice at Gensler, a world leading design firm.

Adam was initially attracted to working for Gensler due to it being the world’s largest film of architects, and the prospects of working with different people and making useful contacts. Adam worked in their small Birmingham office with 12 employees giving him a more personal experience with the added benefit of being part of a much larger film.  

Gensler placement 2 Gensler’s Birmingham office is based in the Custard Factory in the heart of Birmingham’s creative district, giving Adam the chance to experience first hand the fast paced growth of the area.

During his placement Adam focused on using Sketchup and hand drawing to create storyboards of his design proposals, developing ways to effectively present his ideas.
