LSBU & Shell Hoarding Competition Entry 2015

The competition was to come up with a proposal for a section of temporary site hoarding. I decided to draw an abstract timeline highlighting events, people and buildings of the South Bank. I didn’t spend as much time on my entry as I should have, and not surprisingly I didn’t win..

The AA Exhibition 2014

The AA Exhibition 2014

Today I went to see the 2014 Exhibition at The AA. I had visited the likes of The Bartlett and UoW earlier this month so The AA had a lot to live up to! The work on display was very good (it is the AA…), but I felt that it was all trying to be the same after 1st year. Not necessarily a bad thing but variety is nice!

Some of the models were so complex I couldn’t figure out how they had actually been put together… I also felt that some of the work was just too abstract, and felt like it had been done just for the sake of it. My highlight out of all the oddness was the images of 9/11 photoshopped into London (with an accompanying model of the two destroyed towers)…bizarre. Nevertheless, a great exhibition with many talented students hard work clearly shining through.

On a side note, the building was incredibly hot & stuffy and so I tried not to stay longer than was necessary through fear of melting.

Have any of you visited The AA Exhibition yet? Leave me a comment below.

LSBU Exhibition 2014

The LSBU Architecture Exhibition 2014

Last night was the opening night of our (LSBU) Architecture Exhibition. The quality of work seems to get better every year! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, and there was a pretty sizeable crowd (the crowd at the pub opposite afterwards was also pretty sizeable…). Not quite the same scale as The Bartlett Summer Show or The University of Westminster Exhibition that I visited earlier this month, but I must say I was very proud of the work on display (including a lot of my own!).

Did you visit our show? If so, what did you think? Leave a comment below.

Westminster Exhibition 2014

The University of Westminster Architecture Exhibition 2014

After my visit to The Bartlett show, I decided to visit the exhibition for the Architecture students of the University of Westminster as the campus was fairly close by. There was plenty of work on show, and the quality was very high. There was a lot more 3D printed work than I had expected, and the array of other models was impressive.

Did you pay a visit to the exhibition? Leave me a comment below with your thoughts.
