This project aims to create a reflection of the Archivist’s expertise on the 16mm film projector. Functional and flexible spaces are required to be responsible for assessing, collecting, organising, maintaining and preserving the projector as well as being the home and living space for my archivists. The design for the spaces inherits the qualities of the 16mm projector’s aesthetic, materiality, texture, heritage, and function. A significant element of a projector is the layers and connection of mechanical parts and elements, where the design of the interior spaces and furnishing is aspected to reflect those characters.
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.
