Year in


Prof. Teresa Stoppani,

This year’s BA (Hons) Architecture degree projects have probed, inhabited, reconnected the shore, the cliff, the built fabric and the urban voids of Hastings, East Sussex. Situated and attentive to local conditions and issues, each project tackles complex social, existential, cultural, economic issues of global relevance.

Cause and effect

Architecture is only part of the problem and of the solution, but it plays a crucial role in reimagining how we inhabit our environments. What can we learn from the past? How do we celebrate its achievements? How can we inhabit the territory and use its resource without causing further damage?

New territory

This year the Architecture team has grown in numbers and in specialisms. We have worked together across years and projects, sharing spaces and ideas.

Special commendation

In Term 1 we celebrated a Year 3 team’s (Mimi Speed, Alice Collins and Theo Galvin) special commendation award in the Future Spaces Foundation Student Competition organised annually by MAKE Architects in London.

Fellowship awarded

Theo Galvin is the recipient of the Taiwan Summer School Architecture Fellowship 2023, co-sponsored by Tunghai University. In August Theo will participate in the Architectural Association Visiting School ‘Urbanity from the Ocean’, which will take place in Tainan and Tunghai, Taiwan.
