RIBBON OF THE PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE

As the years go by technology becomes more incorporated in everything. In the year 2523, there is no paper record of the past and technology no longer exists. The aim of this project is to design for a simple and traditional tribe who live and work to write about the present and try to piece together the events of the past through old typewriter ribbons found in the Lumsdale site pit. With no electricity available and the change in the colour of the water caused by the copper pipes, the tribe focus on creating a space to re-ink the ribbon and weave it together. A place to store the old and new spools and the main ritual space to stamp on the ribbon everything that happens in their day-to-day lives to prevent future generations from being confused through their storytelling.

BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design

Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.

Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.

We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
