Connect // Graduate Show 2018

 

On Friday evening, we were invited to the opening night of The University of Portsmouth Connect Graduate Show 2018 showcasing the hard work of graduating students from the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries including Architecture, Art and Design and Creative Technologies.

 

The School of Architecture presented work from BA (Hons) Architecture (Part I) graduating 3rd Years, Master of Architecture (Part II) and Interior Design, with studios focusing on different themes relating to local and global issues, urban dwelling and dynamics, ecological infrastructures and cultural landscapes. The range of work on display presents thought provoking ideas to challenge how we approach design and architecture. This year sees fewer hand crafted architectural models with the surge of more ‘computer printed’ generic site models that dominate the exhibition spaces. Part I studios each choreographed an exhibition space suspending work from temporary structures, but a highlight was BA (Hons) Interior Architecture & Design. Each student presented a single image on drawing boards which was then supported by a document allowing you to find out more about the project. The studio had taken the time to create a ‘brand’ that was simple but effective and a pleasure to view.  

 

On display at this year’s show is work by Ellie Knight, a Part 1 graduate starting work with us this July, who is part of the studio group focusing on Fluid Architecture & Radical Living. Ellie’s project explores how architecture responds to the potential risk of natural disasters in Puerto Rico using stacked shipping containers to create new residential accommodation.

 

The exhibition is open from 01/06 to 08/06 from 10am-4pm in the Eldon Building, Winston Churchill Avenue at The University of Portsmouth and is definitely worth visiting. More information can be found via the following link
