Primer Exhibition

The Primer show is a celebration of the first four weeks’ output from Stage 3

Date/Time: Monday 11 November 4.30pm - 6pm

Venue: Architecture Building

The third year in the BA Hons Architecture degree is run as a year-long studio, with students being divided into eight studio groups. The year is split into four distinct phases – Primer, Staging, Realisation and Refinement. The Primer Show marks the end of the initial Primer stage, where students have been encouraged to explore and develop their studio themes.

The output from each studio varies significantly, and is structured around the differing starting points and interests of the studios. The majority of studios combine teamwork and individual activities which feature in the Primer Show. The exhibition gives students the chance to prepare an exhibition, develop presentation skills delivering to their entire year group, learn about the other studios’ perspectives and engage in debate and discussion around emerging themes.  

The Show will be open to the public, beginning at 4.30pm and running until 6pm.
