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!
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”.
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
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!
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.
