Welcome to the showcase featuring the work of graduating students from the Department of Architecture & 3D Design. The work represents creative, imaginative and smart solutions to global challenges. In all our courses we are encouraging innovation, creativity and critical thinking throughout the design process, tackling some of the most important global challenges.
This year has been excellent as we could join the university life, after the impacts of Covid, which has been remarkably positive for our students and staff. Staff have made very good use of alternative means of teaching and communication, as we now live on a ‘new normal’. Everyone has enjoyed a more stable year in which the attributes of the Barbara Hepworth Building were fully exploited alongside opportunities to work more closely with colleagues from the Music, Humanities and Media areas who joined us in the new academic School of Arts and Humanities.
Our students have produced such a vibrant body of work, and this showcase gives us a unique opportunity to celebrate individual successes and show the collective strength of the whole Department. I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped make this happen including the many external visiting lecturers and presenters who have added an extra vital dimension to the student experience this year.
