RIBA Regional Education Group meet in Lincoln

Our quarterly meeting for the RIBA East Midlands Education Group has met in Lincoln last week. It was a great opportunity to get professionals and academics together to discuss architectural education and this time we had the pleasure of having a presentation from Lisa McFarlane from Seven Architecture on Architecture Apprenticeship schemes! Very interesting debate on how this could work and hopefully Schools will take up the opportunity in order to give students more routes through architectural education!

 

LADS go to Liverpool!

 

This term our student society, LADS, organised a trip to Liverpool to explore a city rich in historic and contemporary architecture! The seem to have taken on the spirit of the city! Many more trips to come!

Quote from LADS:

“Our first UK trip of the year was to Liverpool, with 20 of us rambling around Liverpool visiting sights such as Albert Dock, Tate Museum, The Beatles Story, Liverpool Cathedral and taking part in an RIBA tour of Liverpool”.

Architecture Mock Interviews

As a part of the collaboration between the Lincolnshire Society of Architects and the University of Lincoln we organised mock interviews for our students to give them a valuable experience to help them prepare for finding employment. We have to thank our Lincolnshire Architects for their enthusiasm and support for the initiative.

Some news from our student Architecture Society, LADS!

“White t shirt social; our annual white t shirt social is the social we use to kick off our events every year. It’s an opportunity for the new first years to mingle with the existing years in a sociable environment. Here’s a few photos of the committee members at our first ever social as a committee”….

The Society is really active and organises fantastic trips, building visits and nights out to develop relations within the student cohort and a great spirit in the school.

BArch student awarded RIBA Sir Norman Foster Travel Scholarship!

RIBA - Chloe LoaderWe are very excited to announce that Chloe Loader, Year 2 Bachelor of Architecture student has been awarded the RIBA Sir Norman Foster travel Scholarship!!

Foster + Partners announced today that  Chloe was awarded the 2017 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship, a yearly £7,000 student scholarship that gives the recipient an opportunity to travel internationally and “research the future survival of our cities and communities”.

In her submission “Emerging Cities: Sustainable Master-Planning in the Global South”, Chloe will examine how the cities of Curitiba, Mumbai, and Jakarta have each handled rapid urbanization to identify how other cities with similar economics and demographics can potentially evolve.

She’ll begin her travels in Curitiba, Brazil, where she will study how the city has developed a successful urban model while handling large influxes of rural migrants. She will then travel to Mumbai and Jakarta to compare and contrast them with her Curitiba findings. Chloe will conclude her project by exploring potential design strategies for urban development to engage communities.

As the global number of people living in informal settlements is expected to rise to 1.5 billion by 2020, a better understanding of these communities is crucial in the present, says Professor Glen Mills, who has studied informal settlements and is the Head of the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Lincoln. “They are not going to go away so, as planners, architects and engineers, we need to understand them and that’s why Chloe’s project is so relevant. Informal settlements are a part of our global future,” Mills said.

RIBA East Midlands Student Award Winner – Daniel Orford!

We are thrilled to announce that Daniel Orford has won the RIBA East Midlands Student Awards for his Master of Architecture project titled ‘Hedonistic Pleasurescape’ in Blackpool. He will receive the award on the 27th of April at the RIBA Awards!

This project explores the hedonistic environments, which are prevalent at the edge between the physical and natural. In understanding the complexity of spatial augmentation in operation we can begin to re-establish and create a landscape that celebrates hedonism and the carnivalesque within society. This project explores the British seaside as a place of leisure and frivolity, allowing people to escape from the everyday normality. These liminal spaces once at the heart of the society have become increasingly dissected and sanitised by the regulated modern culture.

To see the project in more detail check it out here! http://www.presidentsmedals.com/Project_Details.aspx?id=3703 

Studio tutor Ms. Barbara Griffin.

Frequency Festival and The STAN Project

Frequency Festival of Digital Culture is a biennial festival hosted in the city of Lincoln, providing a platform to celebrate the pioneering spirit of digital innovation and culture through exhibition, creative collision and debate. It showcases artists’ work from all over the world, using a historic city as its canvas and sharing it around the globe.

A multi disciplinary team of students and staff based in the Lincoln School of Architecture and Design and the Lincoln School of Computer Science has exhibited at the Drill Hall in Lincoln for Frequency Festival. Working as a team for a number of years, exploring the question; how to materialize or make physical the immaterial world of social media? Projects they have completed include the Gold Medal winning Twitter gardens in Chelsea and Harrogate.

A mechanised installation controlled via Twitter, Pynchon’s Wall searches for key words and phrases related to this year’s Frequency theme of liberation and moves its panels based on the data it receives. The wall mines its own analysis and responds directly to certain subjects, allowing the audience to interact with and direct the work, forming a visual representation of public opinion.

The project has been highlighted as one of the exhibits to see in numerous publications and social media!
