As Paul flies off to Copenhagen – thanks for two great days of input from him to MArch and BSc professional skills and a public lecture too.
Architecture at Queens was pleased to support Sasha Greig with a substantial bursary towards her acting as one of the invigilators at the Irish Pavilion, co-curated by our Gary Boyd and John McLaughlin, at the 2014 Venice Biennale, Italy. Here is photograph of Sasha at the Pavilion – and her reflective essay she wrote while at the Venice Biennale of Architecture.

Dr Paul Larmour is giving the Arts Council / British Council Festival lecture tomorrow – architects often forget the innovation of the earlier part of the 20th century – which can inform discussion and design of today.

Adrian Dobson: “In architecture it is a long road to success, but what does success look like. Career development routes in architecture are notoriously ill defined, but there are many routes to a career in architecture which is rewarding personally and professionally, and profitable as well! You may or may not be the next Starchitect, but there is surely a place for you in the architectural firmament if you can demonstrate your unique proposition and communicate it to the myriad audiences which impact upon the realisation of architecture”

A date for the diary – 6pm, Wednesday 5th November
Sophie Le-Bourva has an international reputation as an innovating design engineer identifying design opportunities and synergies between and across disciplines. Her portfolio includes the Millennium Bridge in London, collaborations with Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers, Norman Foster, Shigeru Ban, OMA, and Future Systems. This is the first of a series of lectures from leading international design practitioners in the built environment and builds on the legacy of Peter Rice, the design engineer of some of the most significant structures in the latter half of the twentieth century. The School of Planning Architecture and Civil Engineering at Queen’s University Belfast, invites all to this, the first of a series of annual lectures that will be of interest to engineers, architects, and all interested in the potential of design to improve the built environment and enhance and support human experience.
Architecture graduates John Murray, Darren Ward and Martin Delaney have been shortlisted for the Young Architects studio competition, run by the AIA Pittsburgh, and are also up for the people’s choice award. To find out more about the competition and to vote, please click here.
