FRANKFURT ARCHITECTS GET A TASTE OF HULL

 

Architects and civil engineers from Frankfurt are getting a taste of Hull this week, thanks to the Hull School of Architecture.

 

Twenty architects and civil engineers studying Masters qualifications in Project Management in Frankfurt travelled to Hull on 1st July as part of a professional practice unit on the recommendation of an ex-Hull School of Architecture graduate who went to work for DNP Architects in Stuttgart.

 

Their two-week stay which finishes on 13th July has included a tour of the Deep with Terry Farrell Architects, a visit to York Minster with leading architect Richard Carr-Archer and a visit from Quibell construction group.

 

Other key players in the regeneration of Hull have also been involved including Tom Barnes from the East Riding Council’s planning office and Jo Barnes from Hull CityVision.

 

“This is the first time they have visited Hull and they have been really impressed with the city’s regeneration - especially having visited the Deep,” said Gary Hornsby, senior lecturer in Architecture and organiser of the professional practice unit.

 

“Their trip has provided an opportunity for business and education to learn from each other and promote the image of the city,” he added.
