LSBU Architecture Summer Exhibition is eye-opener to architecture of the future
30 June 2015
Work by London South Bank University (LSBU)'s cohort of architecture
students will go on display in the Student Centre for LSBU's annual
Architecture Exhibition which opens on 30 June.
The LSBU Architecture Exhibition
2015 features models, drawings and films produced by students from all
years of the LSBU undergraduate and postgraduate architecture courses. It presents
the results of cutting-edge architectural design projects undertaken in
response to an extraordinary range of topics that students have been researching,
exploring and debating over the past year of their course.
The exhibition reveals the students' commitment to making creative
and innovative architecture, and in particular is informed by their engagement
with London, its citizens and its culture. Students have also addressed
real-world architectural problems, such as the impact of globalisation on
design projects, the need for efficient and sustainable building in cities and
the benefits of advanced and innovative digital technology on architectural
design. Visitors to the exhibition will experience critical work that is
informed by close observation of current conditions but will also enjoy work

Mary Jane Rooney, Director of Architecture at LSBU, commented: "At
this time of year there is a flurry of activity across the school. Teaching has
stopped for the summer and during the end-of-year exhibition we review and
celebrate the year's work. The projects, drawings, and writings in this
exhibition transmit the energy and DNA of the students, staff, alumni and practitioners
who come together to learn and teach here. It is a good time to reflect upon all
that we do at LSBU, and the creative design of spaces and architecture that the
