Architecture Degree Show 2024

Published on: 14 June 2024

The annual celebration of work by students in the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, is going on show.

Ideas and designs

Students have come up with a wide range of imaginative ideas and designs including a community hub in North Shields, a climbing/day-care centre in Queensferry and transforming Wylam Pumping station into an outdoor learning school.

 Ilyeob Kim is a Stage 6 student in Professor Neveen Hamza’s studio In Mind. Their work focuses on creating a new style of intergenerational care facility that promotes synergistic, inclusive, and diverse environments for all generations. 

Charlotte Ashford, another Stage 6 student in the Quarrying a New Stone Vernacular studio, puts earthen materials at the centre of her thesis project. She created a series of interventions along Northumberland’s coastline to challenge weathering and embrace entropy as part of the design’s narrative.

Hard work

Dr Samuel Austin, Director of Architecture at Newcastle University said: “The degree show is a fantastic opportunity to share design work from across our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in architecture, architecture and urban planning, landscape, and urban design, celebrating the incredibly hard work and dedication of our students and all colleagues who have supported them. Projects undertaken in diverse research-led studios offer inventive, sensitive, and hopeful responses to urgent challenges affecting how we make places and live together, from the climate emergency to housing crisis.”

 The Degree Show opens at 6pm on Friday 14 June in Newcastle University’s Architecture Building and the Farrell Centre and runs until 24 June. It transfers to the Crypt on the Green,  Clerkenwell, London on Thursday 27 June. The Newcastle Degree Show and annual Design Yearbook is sponsored by FaulknerBrowns, and the London Show is sponsored by Grimshaw Architects.
