Talented Architecture graduates from UWE Bristol will unveil their first ever London Degree Show from 04-06 July 2014 at the Candid Arts Trust. This is the first time in the 18 year history of the course that the degree show has been taken to London, marking a real milestone for the Department of Architecture and the Built Environment.

The show and private viewing on Thursday 3 July will be opened by UWE Bristol, Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve West and George Ferguson, the Mayor of Bristol and past RIBA President.

The evening is also an opportunity to celebrate the retirement of Professor Richard Parnaby who joined UWE Bristol in 1996. Richard played a key role in developing the UK's first new school of architecture since the 1960s, centred on unique joint undergraduate courses in architecture and planning and architecture and environmental engineering.

On display at the show will be a selection of work from our BA(Hons) Architecture and Planning (RIBA Part I / RTPI), BEng(Hons) Architecture Environmental Engineering (RIBA Part I/ CIBSE), BSc (Hons) Architecture Technology and Design (CIAT)and Masters of Architecture (RIBA Part II).

There will be an Open Day on Saturday 5 July for prospective students to view the work of the department.

Elena Marco, Associate Head of Department for Architecture, said, “We have brought our degree show to London to ensure that our students engage with the top architecture and engineering practices in the country. We are keen to engage with London practitioners and showcase all the fantastic work of our graduating students, as well as to say thank you to colleagues who have helped us as visiting tutors, reviewers or external lecturers over the past years.

“The Department of Architecture and the Built Environment aims to offer a transformative experience across all our programmes of study at UG and PG level. We equip our students with a set of transferable skills that allow them to create, experiment and test ideas; enabling them to become designers that are concerned with the art of building well. We believe our offer is rich and varied preparation for wider career choices.”
