Architecture students create follow-up to popular Aberdeen-inspired colouring book

Architecture students at Robert Gordon University (RGU) have, for the second year running, created an adult colouring book, drawing inspiration from the Granite City and its buildings.

Aberdeen colouring book 300 x 300This book has been produced by first year RGU and International College at Robert Gordon University (ICRGU) students, who were set the task of designing a colouring book for grownups, featuring at least 10 drawings based on themes inspired by the city’s architecture.

The students worked in teams to capture some of Aberdeen’s most well-known buildings including the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, St Machar Cathedraland the Aberdeen Sports Village.

At the end of the project each of the groups was required to produce a bound and covered copy of their book and deliver a presentation on their work.

Lecturer Amar Bennadji said: “After the popularity of last year’s task and the incredible work put in by our students, we decided to run the project again focusing on different themes.

“The students have been working in groups and have managed to capture some of the inspirational architecture which exists in the Granite City and now others will have the opportunity to inject some colour into these images.”

The students’ sketches will be collated into a single book and a number of copies produced for display.
