Talbot Gallery of Photography

This scheme branches the connection between the old and new, through the scope of analogue and digital photography techniques. The age of modern photography has left behind much of the magic and wonder of capturing photons with photosensitive film.

The approach of the Talbot Gallery immerses the user in the history of photography, through the framing of views on the approach to the site, into the site and out of the site. This immersion is sorely missing in our daily lives, as we are often found on our phones instead of being present in the moment in time.

Visitors within the Talbot Gallery are immersed within both extremes of light and shadow, and every spectrum between. This mirrors the photography development process of intense exposure to light and dark.

Finally, the journey traversed by the user encapsulates the process of development from early photography to modern photography as we know it today. This journey weaves the three buildings together reflecting the collaboration of old and new, and an opportunity for the younger generation to take time away from their mobile phones to experience the true tranquillity of the photographic process and contribute to the revival of a dying craft

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
