Student shows 2013: Hull School of Art and Design

Felix Mara reviews the Hull School of Art and Design’s end of year show

The new school of architecture set up at Hull School of Art and Design in 2010 rose from the ashes of the Hull School of Architecture, which transferred to the University of Lincoln in 2003. As senior lecturer Bridget Hansford, who taught at the original school, explains, this left a void in the community, which had enjoyed a symbiotic relationship with its school of architecture since 1934. Like many schools, Hull uses its surroundings and the challenge of their regeneration, as a workshop for architectural education. Some see working in this idiosyncratic, historic and somewhat isolated context as a unique existential experience, and the school has strong links with local practice as well as enjoying the benefits of being set in an art school.

Standout unit Hull is a small undergraduate-only school, too small for a unit system.

Standout students Among the aspiring first crop of graduate projects, Cameron Farrell’s water sports centre stood out for its industry, and Charlotte Raywood’s blobby Maggie’s Centre displayed imaginative design talent. Shaun Todd’s postgraduate research centre followed on from his first semester constructivist community hub model.

In a word Pioneers
