Random Art Space, Nottingham

The aim of this project is to create a multi-complex cultural facility that is open to both designers and the public in Nottingham. The main considerations were to utilise the level difference within the site to create several access routes and separate the building mass from each other and use the space between them as an open public space. Furthermore, creating a new axis of connection between surrounding contexts and thus landscaping plan for more flexible human traffic flowing into the site are also main objectives.

Research Project

The aim of the research project is to evaluate the effectiveness of parametric-based design software on the building’s energy efficiency. The research was conducted as a simulation-based research, resulting in an 8% more energy-efficient design being proposed in the early design stages. The software used in the simulation are Revit and Dynamo, which were collaborated effectively to create the various independent variables required for the simulation, such as ‘glazing ratio and aspect ratio’.

Architectural Technology

The BSc (Hons) Architectural Technology course is a professionally-focused gateway to a career in the architecture industry. Students explore how buildings are created, procured, constructed and managed, and develop a practical and imaginative approach to design through a project-based learning experience.

As specialists in architectural technology, our graduates are the link between concept and reality; learning to identify, assess and challenge client and user requirements, translating ideas and possibilities into effective, practical and sustainable building solutions.
