We are exactly one month away from the OPEN 2017 – the end of year exhibition, which will showcase the work of our BA, MArch, IABA and Architectural Technology students.
Every year, alongside the exhibition, a catalogue of students’ work is published. We spoke to Clare Hamman, the catalogue designer, to tell us what we can expect from this year’s edition.
Same as in previous years, the catalogue is to feature the best of students’ projects and give general insight into the type of work produced at the Faculty of Architecture and Built Environment. Yet, as every architecture student and practicing architect knows, architecture is much more than just a final polished product. To highlight the importance of the design process and offer an understanding of the design trajectory, trials and errors involved, this year each studio section will be supplemented with an additional page, to show the evolution of the work throughout different design stages, from its conception to its realisation.
As a way of expanding the information on studios, a very short biography of tutors, their practices and research interests will also be included in this year’s edition.
For the first time the catalogue will feature work of students from the Designing Cities: Planning and Architecture (BA Hons) course, as well as the projects from the Architectural Technology (BSc Hons) course.
So, please join us for the opening of the exhibition on the 15th June and pick up your own copy of OPEN 2017 catalogue, as, in Clare’s own words, “it’s about showing you the future of architecture.”
OPEN 2017 is part of the London Festival of Architecture.
