Nominations for the RIBA Regional prize are here for all to see! Congratulations Jed Wellington, Isaac Timson, Harry Hutt and Joseph Istance, nominated by the LSA, the Lincoln Society of Architects.
We are very excited to announce that Chloe Loader, Year 2 Bachelor of Architecture student has been awarded the RIBA Sir Norman Foster travel Scholarship!!
Foster + Partners announced today that Chloe was awarded the 2017 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship, a yearly £7,000 student scholarship that gives the recipient an opportunity to travel internationally and “research the future survival of our cities and communities”.
In her submission “Emerging Cities: Sustainable Master-Planning in the Global South”, Chloe will examine how the cities of Curitiba, Mumbai, and Jakarta have each handled rapid urbanization to identify how other cities with similar economics and demographics can potentially evolve.
She’ll begin her travels in Curitiba, Brazil, where she will study how the city has developed a successful urban model while handling large influxes of rural migrants. She will then travel to Mumbai and Jakarta to compare and contrast them with her Curitiba findings. Chloe will conclude her project by exploring potential design strategies for urban development to engage communities.
As the global number of people living in informal settlements is expected to rise to 1.5 billion by 2020, a better understanding of these communities is crucial in the present, says Professor Glen Mills, who has studied informal settlements and is the Head of the School of Architecture & Design at the University of Lincoln. “They are not going to go away so, as planners, architects and engineers, we need to understand them and that’s why Chloe’s project is so relevant. Informal settlements are a part of our global future,” Mills said.

This week students were challenged to make a famous building out of Jelly. It was quite the messy event! Students from the whole school came to witness the wonderment! The idea behind the challenge was that students would each have to study a particular building, understand it in plan, section and three dimensions and document it. Students also had to make a model of the building and produce a mould using vacuum forming. The quick project got students working hard in the workshop and helped them become more familiar with the tools available to them!
Here are some examples!
This free competition is open to all students taking part in an illustration course in the UK.
The winner of the student category will receive a prize of £3,000 and a trophy. The runner up will receive £2,000 and a trophy.
For more information and to enter go to the V&A Illustration awards website.

Yesterday we had a day of year two crits and here is a small selection of some of the work! We were impressed by the level of exploration and resolution in the projects! There were a number of different briefs exploring notions of edge, gallery, historical context and a live competition brief. Well done students and tutors! There was a good mix of models, visualisation, hand drawing, and good architectural drawing standards all used to further describe ideas and explore and test ideas!
We are pleased to announce that Lorna Lovatt was awarded the £200 for her project voted by Scothern community for the live project for Scothern Village Hall. I would like to thank and congratulate studio tutor Harry Foley who worked with the studio group and the selected students who exhibited their proposals. Thanks for getting the team together and putting on such a professional exhibition of work.
The exhibition was a great success with over 120 people from the village who came and judged the work. Feedback from the Scothern community were that they were incredibly impressed by the standard of work and the students professionalism and their ability to talk about their projects. The students have had great insight into real community engagement.
Linda Durance from Scothern initially made contact and approached the Bachelor of Architecture team. Thank you Linda! The future for Scothern Village Hall is that by 2020 they will have the funding to build and have said that the work of students has been incredibly helpful in seeing what is possible!
Well done team! The Year 2 Architecture students that exhibited were: Lorna Lovatt, Tom Camm, Joe Maguire, Billie Jordan, Charlotte McEwan, Emily Williams, Isaac Timson and George Simms
We are thrilled to announce that Daniel Orford has won the RIBA East Midlands Student Awards for his Master of Architecture project titled ‘Hedonistic Pleasurescape’ in Blackpool. He will receive the award on the 27th of April at the RIBA Awards!
This project explores the hedonistic environments, which are prevalent at the edge between the physical and natural. In understanding the complexity of spatial augmentation in operation we can begin to re-establish and create a landscape that celebrates hedonism and the carnivalesque within society. This project explores the British seaside as a place of leisure and frivolity, allowing people to escape from the everyday normality. These liminal spaces once at the heart of the society have become increasingly dissected and sanitised by the regulated modern culture.
To see the project in more detail check it out here! http://www.presidentsmedals.com/Project_Details.aspx?id=3703

On the 12th of March we held our annual applicant open day with great success and very interesting outcomes! The workshop was to build large scale models using the narrative of Italo Calvinos Invisible Cities, a series of essays that describe imagined cities, thin cities, cities and the dead, cities and the sky… We also used Charles and Ray Eames House of Cards as a structural methodology so the project required the applicants to also consider structure! A perfect combination of concept, narrative and construction!
