Student shows 2013: University of Nottingham

Laura Mark reviews the University of Nottingham’s end of year show

The University of Nottingham’s degree show is huge. Despite exhibiting just a selection of first- and second-year student projects, the show is packed with work. It does slightly feel like it could do with an element of curation, but it is commendable that the department is showcasing all the final-year students’ work, at both part 1 and 2. Part 1 students are taught in mixed groups of second- and third-year students - a fairly new initiative, introduced to encourage collaboration between years, and to enable students to learn from each other.

Standout units The sixth-year manufacturing unit, run by Michael Stacey, focuses on the process of making within architecture. It has consistently produced some of the best work at the school. This year students have been influenced by Alvar Aalto, and created a selection of one-to-one chairs. The part 1 students who built a school in Limpopo, South Africa, show a commendable live project where students can use their skills to help others.

Standout students Laura Gaskell has produced what her tutor described as ‘one of the best projects the school has seen in the past five years’. ‘London Makers Foundation’ is a sophisticated and well-crafted look at ways in which young creatives can make money out of their talents.

In a word Cram-packed
