BA (Hons) Architecture
The year in review
Words by Raymond Quek, Course Leader
Architecture at NUA is young and vibrant and these pages show a growing culture of highly creative imagination – we are proud to show display these globally, socially and environmentally aware student projects.
Our graduating cohort focussed their architectural visions on the coastal city of Hull, exploring how interventions can instigate points of urban growth – considering wider issues such as social and economic uplift, environmental response, urban and contextual fit. They have also explored contemporary concerns in health and safety, ecology and detailed technological design.
…whilst Andrew Johnson’s proposal ‘The Crank’ offers a different take on hotel design bespoke for cyclists.
Addressing music education and performance, Morgan Radford explores fitting these needs in the tight Hull urban scape.
Bahlen Hasan’s proposed revamp of the Shotwell tower, once used to produced shotgun cartridges, converts a building that once supported the blood sport of hunting to a modern sports centre.
Ours is a three-future school: in the immediate term our graduates are certainly very well prepared for employment directly in the professional field and across a range of pathways where their transferable skills are in demand. Our students are also very aware of the impact they will have one day in the near future when they become leaders of industry, but they are also highly conscious of the far future when they inherit the mantle as custodians of heritage, legacy and all that is valuable in our planet and her inhabited environs. It all begins here!
