16 Students quotes (i) ‘As a mathematician… this project has allowed me to broaden my thinking patterns which will help me in the future should engineering be a path I take’. ‘If I were to lead a similar task I would certainly spend more time at the beginning assessing the task, the skills and understanding of the group…from the start.’

17 Students quotes (ii) ‘I feel there has been an additional contribution to understanding how any resource in the world can be utilised to a greater benefit if you explore and discuss the way to utilise it with those around you.’

18 Students quotes (iii) ‘As E.F Schumacher said: Any intelligent fool can invent further complications, but it takes a genius to retain, or recapture, simplicity - small is beautiful A building that is placed in war stricken countries will find it difficult to keep both sides happy, but I believe the simplicity of the project is its greatest strength.’
