Student Shows 2014: University of Lincoln

Mark King reviews Lincoln School of Architecture’s end-of year show

Hosted between the Charlotte Scott building and the University’s showpiece Art, Architecture and Design building, the University of Lincoln degree show is the most comprehensive to date.

Stand out unit & course

The Undergraduate course continues to thrive with students displaying an understanding of site parameters and pragmatism in the design approach whilst delivering exciting design projects but it is the Postgraduate studios led by Richard Wright, Barbara Griffin and Trevor Elvin that are strong throughout. A plethora of rational and technically astute propositions have been developed through the semiotic analysis of an event, movement or place. This process is underpinned by units, which encourage thorough cultural, theoretical and technical understanding.

Stand out student & project

The stand out project is Daniel Christie’s ‘Borough Market Expansion, Southwark London.’ A series of conjoining hybrid buildings synthesize to form a hub of market, commercial and residential activity. The proposal evolves out of close negotiations with its railway viaduct context and considerations for future evolution and adaption of the buildings -a notion enforced by the inevitable shifts in user and programme requirements over time. The project culminates in a graphically exciting and pragmatic solution. Credit also to Paul Nelson for his project, ‘Robinson’s Wunderkammer’ - an indulgent gallery of personal mementos that becomes an extension of the titular character’s psyche.
