RIBA Gulf Live Lunch Talk: Maryam Al-Irhayim on navigating the pandemic as a student

This is a recorded livestream of RIBA Gulf’s live lunch talk with Maryam Al-Irhayim that took place on 20 October 2021.

This session focused on students and new graduates, and changes to studio dynamics. Moving from being surrounded by your peers to being isolated on your computer and watching your lecturer speak can be quite daunting, but in hardship there is strength and resilience. As we manoeuvre into trying to go back to what we perceived as normal there will be new challenges on balancing returning to the studio safely and online classes.

Topics include:
– Learnings from current RIBA Vice President for students and associates at RIBA Council on dealing with the new hybrid and virtual environment of architecture learning through COVID
– Methods to increase motivation and classroom connection to fellow students and professors through virtual education
– Tips on applying for a job as an early architect through the pandemic
– An extended interactive Q&A session to learn more about being an architecture student in current times and studying in the UK

Maryam Al-Irhayim is an architecture student at Manchester School of Architecture and is interested in conservation and computational design. She is the current Vice President for Students and Associates on RIBA Council, and is a student representative of Architecture for Change and Future Architects.
