ARCHITECTURE MEETS JAZZ

 

Music lovers and architecture enthusiasts are being invited to an event at the University of Lincoln next week (22nd June) to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Architecture Week.

 

The ‘Architecture Meets Jazz’ event is being held in the award-winning Lincoln School of Architecture which was nominated by The Times as its favourite new building of 2003.

 

During the evening which will get underway at 6.30pm architect Julia Barfield of Marks Barfield Architects will give a presentation of her work including the London Eye - the largest observation wheel ever built and the only cantilevered structure of its kind in the world.

 

There’ll also be live music from internationally acclaimed jazz-funk quintet Badbone & Co, a licensed bar and live World Cup action in the café / bistro.

 

Admission is by free ticket obtainable from www.architecturemeetsjazz.com or by calling 01522 886749. The evening will begin at 6:30pm, with Julia Barfield's talk starting at 7:10pm.

 

During the week which runs from 16th – 25th June students at the university will be displaying their work in an end-of-year degree show.

 

Also located in the Architecture Building, the exhibition will include final year work from Architecture, Interior Design, Museum and Exhibition Design and Product Design students.

 

The show is open to the public from Monday 19th to Friday 23rd June with a private viewing on Friday 18th June.
