The BA Architecture course at NUA operates within a creative fine art context, encouraging students to design with an understanding of aesthetic, cultural, historical and technical considerations. Programmes include social and technological studies, film and site analysis, an evening lecture programme open to industry guests which has included talks by Jane Wernick, Rod Heyes of Caruso St. John and Robert Sakula of Ash Sakula, and a field trip to Prague to see examples of Czech Functionalist Architecture.

Professor Hilary Carlisle, Dean of Arts and Design at NUA, says: “This exhibition showcases the work of some of our talented year two architecture students in a way that represents both the students and the course admirably. Our students have much to be proud of and this time of year should be one to celebrate achievements.”

Cinematic Landscapes is showing in the NUA Architecture Studios 12pm – 2pm, Monday – Friday until 5 July, or by appointment.
