Students collaborate on project of university building

BA (Hons) Architecture, BA (Hons) VFX students

It’s not often that a student gets to ‘destroy’ a University Building, but when NUA’s BA (Hons) Architecture and BA (Hons) VFX students collaborated on a recent project during March 2017, looking at how buildings in Norwich might be changed by animals or insects after some kind of apocalypse, they decided to research how the University itself might deteriorate and collapse after 300 years and an invasion of Death Watch Beetles. In a unique 6 day collaboration project, Architecture students researched how the buildings underlying structure might be stressed and disintegrate over time, whilst VFX students incorporated textures and 3D digital projections into photographic documentation of contemporary spaces.
