NTU Architecture Subject Group


This manifesto presents to create a space to preserve and restore sewing machines within the existing arts and crafts centre. The archive itself will present sewing machines of different types and the mechanics of how they work which will be reflected in the object laboratory area. The interior design will reflect aspects of the sewing machine as well as areas in relation to it such as fabrics and lacings. Nonetheless the space will show a division between private and public where in the public area people will be able to grasp knowledge around basic stitching and the mechanisms of the machine. They will also be able to show their unique creations to their friends and families through a weekly fashion runway show.

BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design

Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.

Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.

We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
