The brief required us to design a building that would work as a 'Temple of Culture and Community.' The location of my chosen site is surrounded by new builds, meaning there is room for adjustment to the culture and community.
After thorough research and site analysis, I understood that the location would be suitable for a grand banqueting suite and a practical teaching kitchen and a cooking school. The idea behind this is to create a community within the space so individuals can meet new people and create memories and offer new jobs.
As humans, we are entitled to create new memories every day. However, sometimes there’s that special day where you want that memory to last forever, so I have designed Trent Memory Lane. A Grand Suite with South-facing facades and views, outdoor bars/ pizza oven, and a ceremonial/ after-party space right on the bank of the River Trent for an unforgettable and perfect memory.
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.
