Catharsis Centre University of Lincoln

Tutor: Richard Wright

The absence of a portfolio to accompany electronic images made this project difficult to judge. Indeed, the panel commented that this scheme for a 'catharsis centre'may have been more highly regarded if it had been accompanied by a compilation of supporting material.But the strength and grace of the work was undeniable.The drawings were highly praised for their sensitivity, although some images veered a little too much towards the realm of graphic design.The ability of the computer models to convey the sense of the scheme was especially good.One weakness, in the opinion of the judges, was the fictional nature of the scheme.'What is a catharsis centre?'asked one judge.'And why do invented institutions always end up in beautiful sites?'
