The Interactive Craft Museum



This Nostalgic Craft Museum consists of being a communal building that was designed for the city of Nottingham, the structure not only allows the sense of belonging, improvements of mental wellness and immersion with the present to both older and younger users of the building spaces, but it also conveys the notion of Nostalgia and Memory through the usage of different arts and crafts workshops that celebrate some of the forgotten craft and material manipulation styles that existed in the different generations of the city.

The goal here is also to have the community centre serve as a civic structure for the artists and makers inside everyone, for the community of arts and crafts enthusiasts, and also to allow both experts and beginners to learn different craft techniques from one another through their engagement with the present, which can result from the exchange in ideas.

Therefore, resulting on the creation of an environment that promotes the interaction and learning of traditional craft between different aged people. Thus, allowing the more experienced older generation of artisans to pass down their memories and skills with the younger generation, and it is also through this process of accumulating and exchanging memories and experiences that the feeling of nostalgia starts to originate.

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.
