22nd June 2001




The Hull School of Architecture is to open its doors to the public to mark National Architecture Week (25th to 30th June 2001).


Exhibits on show at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside’s George Street campus next week include:


·        designs for sustainable public toilets in Hull (see press release sent 22/6/01)

·        prize-winning designs by UK students for a sustainable housing scheme

·        pieces of furniture designed and built by ULH Interior Design students

·        computer-aided design facilities in the Hull School of Architecture

·        illustrations by three graduates of the Central St Martin’s School of Art and Design


“The architecture exhibitions on show next week constitute an environmentally friendly look at how buildings could be designed in the future,” says Norman Arnold, a senior lecturer at the Hull School of Architecture.


“The designs for public toilets by our second-year students are all sustainable in one way or another, as are the housing designs, which were produced nationally for the Eric Lyons Memorial Fund Architectural Students’ Competition.


“Particularly interesting are the designs for sustainable housing by ULH student George Kontaroudis, which won second prize in the competition and which the judges described as ‘amazingly inventive and richly presented… in the Erskine tradition.’”


Members of the public are invited to view the exhibits from Monday to Saturday next week. Admission to the George Street building is free. For more details call Alan Latham on 01482 462018.
