Student Shows 2012: Lincoln School of Architecture

The diversity on show at Lincoln captures Nigel Stevenson’s attention

The Lincoln degree show was a mix of styles and work-based themes very much reflecting the diverse range of tutors the school employs.

This results in an interesting blend of projects ranging from well considered pragmatic solutions which are clearly safe and could commence on site tomorrow, to bold, futuristic schemes, which often do appear to overlook fundamental elements such as structure in the search for aesthetic nirvana.

Standout unit

Although there is a concern that the process and graphic presentation is of greater importance than the final architectural solution, the work produced in the standout Wright Studio is exciting and pushes students to challenge traditional values and techniques in architectural methodology.

Standout students

The British Library Extension by Mathew Cooper is a stunning piece of work, which challenges the institutional British Library. The braid of spiralling metalwork gives the impression it is searching for knowledge hidden deep within the red brick vaults of the existing building.

However, the Future Power Station designed by Antonias Lalos captures the imagination above all, a beautiful form which draws you in with almost hypnotic qualities. Is it Architecture or should we be warning the military to prepare for our ‘Independence Day’?

In a word
