The 2017 GSA Summer Show featured the work of 82 students in both years of the Master’s programme, including a special ‘award-winners’ stand showcasing past and present Corobrik, RIBA, Africa Architecture Awards and ArchiPRIX nominees. To market the event, two concepts were presented which would be applied later on to various print and digital designs.
The Summer Show is always a time for the school to reflect on the year and to celebrate each of the students who made it both unique and successful. The chosen concept was called “reflection” and the execution involved photographing six students by award-winning photographer, Nick van Renen. The look was then applied to posters, banner and digital media. Lastly, a custom folded poster was designed and featured all 82 students with a special uncoated silver ink finish. These were handed out at the entrance of the show’s opening.
