Jonathan Skerritt reviews Lincoln School of Architecture’s end of year show

Housed within the award-winning building designed by Rick Mather Architects, the University of Lincoln presents a high standard of work across tutor-led studio groups with clearly defined pedagogical agendas.

Standout units The third-year projects are excellent, as students exhibit intriguing architectural engagements within the context of the city, resulting in comprehensive enquiries, in-depth research and pragmatic resolutions. Meanwhile the MArch programme has offered students the freedom to develop their own distinctively individual projects, which is reflected in a diverse synergy of proposals, spectacular imagery and intricately crafted models.

Standout students The beautifully presented ‘Lea Valley Gin Distillery’ by Clare Hawes reintroduces the historically important gin-distilling industry at the reservoirs of the Lea Valley. Molly Judge’s project ‘Mitigating the Urban Heat Island’ monitors and eases the effects of the urban heat island in London via a research facility and a city-wide scheme of green space. In the MArch programme, Adam Skidmore proposes a market place for independent sellers developed through a theoretical narrative of social control. Will Picken reinterprets the post-industrial landscape south of Newcastle through the medium of sound art.

In a word Holistic
