Cambridge 2015

The University of Cambridge Summer Show 2015

 

The University of Cambridge had their architecture exhibition in the Truman Brewery for a couple of days this week. The show was very spacious and well laid out, with plenty of room to move between the work and the various elements. The work was well balanced with plenty of hand drawings, models and exploration elements. It was the first time I’ve visited the show put on by Arcsoc, and it is run and organised entirely by the students, and they did an excellent job. I will be sure to visit again next summer.

The AA Exhibition 2015

The AA Summer Show 2015

 

This morning I took a look around the AA 2015 Exhibition. Lots of fantastic work. Not as much 3D printed work as I was expecting, but that was probably for the best. I particularly liked the section studying double curved surfaces, which was fascinating stuff. There seemed to be more technical work, such as detailed sections, which I’m sure I didn’t see quite so many of last year, which was all very impressive. There was so much work on display that I struggled to take decent photographs as I couldn’t get the distance, which is always a positive sign.

The Bartlett Summer Show 2015

 

Unfortunately part of the exhibition was closed when I arrived due to “an accident”, so I didn’t get to see one or two of the units work. The work I did see however, was as amazing as ever. The change of venue over previous years was a welcome change, as the work on display had a little more room to breathe. I believe it also helped that I visited on a Monday morning when the show was very quiet, but the whole exhibition seemed to have much more space than last year, which helps when trying to take in all the work.

 

ScanLab Projects have produced a great video showing the transformation of the space and the show itself:

CASS 2015

The CASS Exhibition 2015

 

I took a quick look around the CASS yesterday afternoon. The work on show was substantial and of a very high quality. The amount of hours of work that had been put into the year by the students was obvious. It was actually the first time that I had visited their end of year show, but after seeing the amazing work on display I will be sure to return.

LSBU Exhibition 2015

The LSBU Architecture Exhibition 2015

Earlier this week was the opening night of our Architecture Exhibition. Our studio decided to go all out and construct a Market House to stand above our work, with a strong market theme running throughout. After a few hard days working in the workshop we managed to complete the structure, and spent a good few hours laying out all the work and making the final adjustments.

It was a great way to end my time at LSBU, and the work on show was outstanding. I have a small selection of images below from opening night.

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!).
