This year’s Spring practice day brought together the two ArchitecturePLB offices at our Winchester studio. These occasions allow the whole practice to update each other on new and recent projects, research and initiatives, including presentations on future business and marketing strategies. The day ended with a keenly contested team building activity that required groups to design and build an airship on a limited budget using balloons and basic craft materials, all of which were set to a budget. Points were awarded for engineering, cost control, team skills and design flair!
