Students on the BA Architecture, BA Interior Architecture, BSc Product Design with Professional Experience and Architecture RIBA Part 2 MArch have been hard at work putting the finishing touches to their ambitious designs as well as building the show itself.
The exhibition, which runs from June 8 to June 14, takes place on the third floor of Mithras House at the university’s Moulsecoomb campus. It is open from 2pm to 7pm on all days except Saturday, June 8 when opening hours are 10am to 3pm to coincide with the university’s open day. Entry is free.
There is a ticketed private view on Friday from 4pm to 10pm.
Among the designs on display are imaginative visions of Sussex locations Brighton, Rye and Newhaven, created by students Josh Hancock (MA Architecture), Rosanna Brocklesby (BA Architecture) and Angharad Webber (MA Architecture) respectively.
Josh’s work, entitled ‘Brighton Seafront: Events, Spectacles, Anarchy and Delight’, is an “investigation of Brighton seafront that reintroduces an architectural language of delight and anarchy”.
Josh said that Brighton as a city has “never been one to play by the rules”, and that his design is a reaction against the danger of “logical urban planning and overly constringent regulations”.
