“Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.”
Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare.
A site between two age groups in Nottingham, is tasked to bridge the gap and create a new temple of community.
Through theatre they meet, and together they create.
Through crafting props, planning plots, and painting back drops, they share stories, ask questions, and also learn lots.
As they journey through this space, they encounter three acts,
and the stories told here are from the present or the past.
The facades of the design, are either hard or soft,
One faces the water, the other from which the audience will watch.
It’s a threshold facade, for those who may have forgot,
those moments of clarity, are the strongest memories we’ve got.
The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.
The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
