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.

What a fantastic trip this year! The LADS organised a wonderful Architecture trip to Barcelona to explore the wonders of the city… From the 20th-26th March we visited Barcelona, visiting sights such as Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell, Barcelona Pavillion, Casa Mila and Batin, Gothic Quarter.
This year for International Womens Day we celebrated women in Architecture by screening She Draws She Builds along with the RIBA Portland Place and many other locations around the country. The screening was sponsored by Forterra and we had an excellent attendance of students and Lincolnshire Architects. Another excellent coming together of the University and practice with great conversation and positive atmosphere for all who came!
We are organising an event in July to celebrate Ethel Day, celebrating Ethel Mary Charles the first female member of the RIBA!
Here is a link to the trailer for She Draws She Builds https://vimeo.com/245425450
As always, LADS organise a successful night raising money for the Society! Well done to them and may there be many more events ahead! Such a talented bunch! the students performed in front of a live audience!
“LADS live music night was our fundraising event in order to fundraise for the end of year advent ball. We made over £542”.
This is becoming an annual thing! Word has it that we will have a summer ball too! Hot off the press! The Advent Ball takes place in the wonderful atmospheric uphill area of Lincoln. This makes it a wonderful and special event for students to experience and marks the end of the term for students!
“Our final celebration to finish off 2017 was our Advent Ball, an occasion we use to celebrate with a 3 course meal. With over, 120 people in attendance, the night was a success”.
Well done also the LADS who manage to organise such a fantastic night!
This year we set the year 1 students the challenge to produce cakes of famous buildings and they really rose to the challenge! Check out these beauties! The winner is the Will Allsop Peckham Library by Zak Craig (the blue one with the chocolate fingers!). What is not appreciated in this picture are the KitKats structure within the cake to support the front portion!
Well done to all who put such a great effort in and thank you to the Lincolnshire Architects for judging the event! The purpose of this was to engage students in a rigorous and different way of understanding precedent, structure and key contemporary architecture!
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.
The University of Lincoln, Leicester School of Architecture in De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham. This is the fourth year that the scheme has been run in the region, starting at the University of Lincoln in 2014.
Cecilia Godoy, RIBA Project Coordinator leading this programme is very pleased with the scheme’s development:
“We are delighted that the RIBA student mentoring scheme in the East Midlands continues to grow year after year. We are very grateful for the involvement of new Chartered Practices, as well as Architect members who are willing to help the students at this stage of their careers”.
RIBA student mentoring is a chance for participants to get a real insight into practice by being welcomed into the team with the support of their own personal mentor. It is seen by participating schools of Architecture as an excellent preparation for their students’ forthcoming year out. For the practices it is an opportunity to benefit by engaging with the next generation of architects and by keeping in touch with emerging talent.’
We are grateful to be supported by the following practices in the Lincolnshire/Newark Area:Core, Benoy, Be-Design, Steven Dunn Architect, Neil Cawley Architect, John Fowkes Architects, Studio G Associates, Simons Group, XL architects, RPS, Steven Dunn Architects.
