Welcome to the showcase featuring graduating students from the Department of Architecture & 3D Design. The work presented in these showcases represents imaginative 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 issues of the 21st century.
This year has seen the Department face both great opportunities and challenges; at the beginning of the year we joined the other two Departments from ADA in our new home in the award-winning Barbara Hepworth Building, bringing the whole together School together for the first time to create a vibrant Art and Design community. And even if that experience was temporarily cut short by the covid19 pandemic we feel a new and exciting chapter in the story of the Department has begun.
It has been a testament to the resilience of students and staff that we have been able to produce such a vibrant body of work in the current circumstances and this showcase gives us a unique opportunity to celebrate individual successes and show the collective strength of the whole Department, and I want to take this opportunity to thank all those who have helped make this happen.
