Sneinton Community Art Center

To challenge the norms of everyday life can sometimes feel counterproductive but by doing so it is the only way we can really change the future; as life moves forward, society changes meanwhile the way we educate does not. For this project I have looked into how our school buildings are designed, how they are failing and how new architectural design features could help improve the education of people. My research has looked at my own experiences through education as well as exploring different education theories to design a community education centre for art. The building will make everyone feel welcome and comfortable, and by doing so will meet individuals needs in the hopes of providing creative freedom and self-actualisation. Nottingham is proud to be a creative city and Sneinton is home to some of Nottingham’s great street art, and with a well-established community, it was the perfect site to house my new education centre. The design aims to meet the needs of as many groups of people as possible, and allow for the creative freedom that typical schools fail to give to their students, while simultaneously strengthening the community and expanding its users skills and prospects

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
