Selected works from the Architecture Degree Show 2013

the theme on the principal floor was ports – Genoa, Hamburg and Marseille – with students divided into groups, given a city and a site. We show some of the more captivating models and images but are happy to consider submissions from students for consideration of publication. Comments and descriptions are welcome.

A brief review of the show by Isabelle Lomholt, e-architect

Mackintosh School of Architecture Degree Show 2013 – Stage 5

This year the students had visited three ports – Marseille, Hamburg and Genoa – all projects were based there, and many had water at their heart. As always there was a display of wall-mounted illustrations, computerised drawings and montages.

Sketch books / design diaries were left out for the visitor’s perusal. I was puzzled to see no sketches in any of the sketchbooks I looked through, just writing, written observations and ‘to do’ lists.

Models for a large part were displayed at floor level and uninviting to give the attention they may have deserved. For third year I would have liked to see a deeper understanding of material s through model making.

There was no sense of design development, no evidence of train of thought, perhaps through the lack of hand-drawn sketches. There were however many beautiful illustrations made in varying ways and that is really the positive message I will take away with me.
