This year our Year 2 students also worked on a new Lincoln Architecture Trail. This is now available through Visit Lincoln’s interactive map app or through their website. The trail brings you on a journey of architecture around the Brayford Pool area highlighting interesting architecture along the way!
Year 2 Architecture students have designed proposals for the New Theatre Royal in Lincoln as part of their course this year. This gives the students an opportunity to work with real clients on an exciting project, considering complex programme of spaces and offering opportunity to learn about working with historic buildings in the city.
The exhibition showcases a selection of project proposals, allowing for some poetic license with thorough consideration for the concept right through to the technical resolution of how this projects would be built and how the buildings would function!
In addition the exhibition also showcases a number of Master of Architecture projects to demonstrate the progression of our students from undergraduate to post graduate study. If you are interested to see the complete end of year show for the University of Lincoln Architecture programmes it will be on the Architecture Building on the University campus on the 8th of June at 6pm 2018.
We would like to invite everyone to our end of year show this year. The preview and awards are on the 8th of June at 6pm! Please do come along. The work in the show will once again demonstrate the talent and ability of our students and we look forward to seeing lots of people there!

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!

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”.
We have nominated our Year 1 BArch student, Jessica Yarrow to be a member of the RIBA Regional Education Group who will be meeting this week in Lincoln. Its a great opportunity for Jessica to influence and inform decisions relating to architectural education from a student perspective!
