This year, BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design second year students visited Barcelona for a week to gain a better understanding of different architectural practices around the world.

The trip included studying a diverse range of modernist architecture, architects and artists such as Gaudi, Josep Llinás Carmona and Francesc Daniel Molina. Students got the opportunity to visit some of the most famous buildings in the city in areas such as La Pedrera and the Placa De Catalunya. The busy week also included trips detailing the centre of Barcelona, the Montjuic and along the La Manzana de la Discordia.

The international trips are an important aspect of the course, allowing students to experience architecture in a different culture, covering everything from regulations to design. The students were asked to produce a visual journal of the time spent in Barcelona incorporating notes, reflections, photographs and sketches. This work enabled students to present research as part of the design process and develop critical, analytical and creative skills in the organisation and analysis of design concepts, proposals and solutions. Students will be able to use their journal as a reference for their final year.

Submitted journals were included in the BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design degree show, exhibited alongside the final year students work. The degree shows were open to members of the Architecture industry, alongside the public.

More information and images of the student work can be found on the degree show website.
