Realist

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

IADT Gets a Makeover

Posted on February 20, 2018
We’ve modernised the study and social areas in the main IADT building.

The ground floor of the Atrium building is a key hub of IADT activity, and one which sees a heavy footfall of students and visitors.  In keeping with the new, contemporary look and feel of our communications, we introduced imagery, graphics, colour and copy to create a distinctive, daring personality

We’ve provided collaborative, flexible spaces for groups to work in and modular compact furniture to enable flexibility with group sizes. These spaces compliment an extended “IDEAS” magnetic glass writing walls for freestyle writing and research. Each area can easily accommodate individual pixel boxes facilitating spontaneous collaboration, stand-up meetings, seminar and presentation spaces, workshops and discussions in small, informal settings.

The ground floor now has informal collaborative working spaces, relaxed eating spaces and touch-down technical hot desks. Students have spacious hot desking areas with individual pods for studying, as well as informal group breakout zones.
