Gareth Horton review’s Hull’s end-of-year show

Bordering the marina in Hull’s up-and-coming cultural quarter, the ‘Fruit Market’, housed in two large orange shipping containers, Hull’s School of Art and Design ‘PUNC-TU-ATE’ exhibition boldly sits proudly displaying the work of students completing their BA(Hons) Architecture course. The exhibition demonstrates a wide range of projects within the theme of ‘Urban Interventions’.

Stand out units & students

The third-year exhibition focused on the student’s final design projects, clearly displaying the resolved results of years of architectural study. With sites involving the development of the Hull area surrounding the exhibition, each project was tastefully highlighted within a large, interesting and useful scale model of the city, showing the relation of each model to the surrounding context and to the viewer’s location at the Edward Gillham introduces the comprehensive idea of an inclusive city-centre- based  ‘Community Disability Centre’, aiming to aid the transition of 16-25 –year olds to independent living.

A clear emotional attachment to the subject and design has inspired Gillham to create a well-researched, thought-out and appealing project. The stand out presentations of Lucas Docherty’s hostel cum halfway house, and Edward’s transition centre, show keen architectural and graphical presentation skills with plenty of potential to take forward to Part2.
