A particular highlight from my visit to the University of Nottingham’s School of the Built Environment summer show were panels relating to Noah’s Ark Nursery School in Jouberton (~ 150km south of Johannesburg. South Africa) designed and built by second year undergraduate students at the school. Professor Michael Stacey, of the University of Nottingham, discusses the school in this week’s BD. My understanding is that the nursery represents the first of a new programme of student projects, and I will be following Nottingham’s progress with interest.

If you’re interested in seeing the output of Britain’s architecture schools, now is the time to catch the various summer shows on at schools around the country. This week I ticked off two, visiting the University of Nottingham’s Exhibit! 09 and the University of Sheffield’s Summer Exhibition. With free entry, they’re an unmissable opportunity to see inside your local school of architecture, and to clock which ones are proudly parading their investment in CNC-cutters, 3D printers etc…
I hope to catch some more in the coming weeks, including those in Glasgow very shortly.
