Architecture student shows 2013: University of Central Lancashire

The newly accredited BSc (Hons) Architecture Summer Show opened on June 14th with work from students displayed until June 25th. The approach for the school is to promote a culture of technical competence, employability and entrepreneurship, exploring the location of Preston and more widely the North West as a learning environment.

Urban stagnation and design; the dichotamy of countryside and town; contextual and cultural themes; conservation and regeneration are amongst the plethora of architectural issues relevant to Preston. 

Professor Kevin Rhowbotham, Head of Architecture said “The school is creatively re-structuring the architectural education model offering new initiatives in architecture and art practice, as well as a pioneering critique of urban and agrarian settlements within a global market.”

“The school is on a major trajectory with recent contributions to the architectural education debate and the success of current students and year out graduates in the recent RIBA Forgotten spaces competition in the North West along with staff research and exhibitions at Tate Liverpool and the recent RIBA man island project and especially the forthcoming new M.Arch course in the next academic year - watch this space!”

  • "The approach for the school is to promote a culture of technical competence, employability and entrepreneurship" - there's no evidence of any of these aims in these images, is there?

  • Hello Michael, I am one of the students who graduated this year from the school. Further to your comment, the images shown are initial conceptual models produced from the very early stages of the project. Although not demonstrated in the above images I have enclosed a link to my personal website which gives you some details of my final design thesis from my final year.
