Friday 28th - Sunday 30th June 2013
The University of Bath’s end of year show is opening to the public in London for one weekend only at the end of June. Bath has a reputation for producing accomplished and sensitive work grounded in a practical approach to design which will stand in stark contrast to some of the London-based architecture school’s more polemic units.
The work to be exhibited represents the final years of the BSc and the MArch programmes and demonstrates each student’s unique investigation into a particular thesis.
The exhibition includes a temporary theatre on the Southbank where the integration of engineering and architecture is used as the generator of design - one of the department’s core principles. Students of both disciplines worked collaboratively in groups, embodying a balance between the poetic and the practical that other architecture schools are often accused of eschewing.
BSc students’ individual projects were set in the city of Gloucester under the overall theme of City as Wilderness while the MArch students visited a host of European cities, proposing master-plans and individual schemes within them. The Bath Architecture School has been gaining respect over the last few years and their 2013 end of year show promises to be well worth a visit.
The show’s opening night is Friday the 28th of June with a bar opening from 5pm until late at the Candid Arts Trust, Islington, London.
Friday 28th June, 12pm - 10.30pm (bar from 5pm)
Saturday 29th June, 10am - 6pm
Sunday 30th June, 10am - 1pm
The Bath architecture school’s end of year show is sponsored by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios
