Next generation of designers exhibit work                            


Students from the Design for Exhibition and Museums, Interior Design, and Architecture courses will be displaying their final projects, which are a culmination of their degree programmes at the University of Lincoln, with a series of exhibitions.


The exhibitions are free of charge and will be open to the public for the week commencing June 21 to 28 (excluding Sunday) between 10am and 5pm.


Fifteen BA (Hons) Design for Exhibition and Museums students will have their work on display on the top floor of the Architecture building. Geoff Matthews, senior lecturer on the course is very excited by this year’s graduates. He said: “Each student is showing two projects and the range of topics and types of exhibition they have tackled is remarkable.” Projects range from a human anatomy exhibition designed for young people to a design for a setting to display the characters from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.


Chris Hay, senior lecturer for BA (Hons) Interior Design has also found this year’s students to have particularly outstanding work, ranging from designs for a designer ‘Paul Smith’ hotel to a revolutionary arts centre in Lincoln.


With around 90 students displaying their final projects, the largest exhibition is that of the BA (Hons) Architecture students. The students’ final projects will be on display on all three floors of the Architecture building and senior lecturer Renée Tobe believes there is “a great deal of interesting work to be seen.” Work on display includes a project examining how moulding processes of positive and negative develops into three dimensional forms to inspire a tea house in Marrakech and another examining music and sound, capturing and expressing aural qualities in model form to produce an Institute of Sound on the Brayford Pool.


The Architecture building is located at the University’s Brayford Campus.
