Soul & Spin

The archivist for Soul and Spin is Colin, a man in his late 60s who wishes to share his nostalgia for his Dansette record player from his youth in the 70s. The research made in the archivist diary explores his interest in the Northern Soul dance culture and the introverted and extroverted aspects found within the record player lifestyle. These contrasting forms have devised the basis of my concept.

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.
