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”.

 

Welcome Jessica Yarrow to the RIBA Regional Education Group!

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!

Jessica has already shown dedication to extra curricular activities within the school. She completed the RIBA Ambassador Training and we look forward to working with her on workshops with school children in Lincolnshire!

Upwards and onwards team….

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.

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!
