The final projects for 3rd Year at the Welsh School of Architecture revolve around three different briefs, all of which are set in the city of Trieste in Italy

These 3 different briefs, all in the city of Trieste in Italy include:

1. The Bubble

2. Sacred Spaces

3. Ghosts

Students have chosen to take these ideas in varying directions, for example:  

Andra Antone is setting up a stage for the world of fashion, discussing the contradictory world of design and the ambiguous environment which is located close to the main railway station in Trieste: “Trieste, the bubble in space and time”.

Katherine Jones is exploring the idea of memory as a spine of our ghostly existence. The drama is set up against the background of Trieste’s genius loci, the harbour and its history: “Ghosts”.

William Sinclair tests notions of history through the idea of skeletal remains. Slices of disused ship hulls from the Mediterranean are arranged structurally in the former docks of Trieste. New concrete masses are added, anchoring the set-up and performing as a new flesh – a new reality: “Fragments of Trieste”.

Timothy Skinner investigates the urban condition of Trieste through the in-betweens of inside and outside-ness. At a key location for the juxtaposition of harbour and city grid – the very place where the exchange of culture happens – a place for a multi-faith centre: “Sacred Spaces”.
