Curated by Dr Tina di Carlo and Dr Sofia Singler

 

The Department of Architecture proudly welcomes visitors to an end-of-year exhibition of student work. The exhibition Hello, Here: (Cantab) Index Vol. 1, offers an overview of the Department’s work from the past academic year.

The exhibition interrogates locality as its central theme. The theme speaks to the longstanding emphasis of place-rootedness in Cambridge’s architectural pedagogical history and contemporary profile.

Hello, Here: (Cantab) Index Vol. 1 presents an index of selected works from undergraduate and postgraduate students, organised by degree programme and year. Alongside a carefully curated suite of hand and digital drawings, models, photography and film, original sketches and sketchbooks emphasise the importance accorded to working drawings in Cambridge’s architectural pedagogy. An eponymous print catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

The exhibition is on show in the famed extension designed by Colin St John Wilson to the Department of Architecture in consultation with Alex Hardy (1957–59). The extension, one of the most widely admired modernist gems in Cambridge, was opened in 1959 by Professor Wilson alongside Le Corbusier.

Curated by Drs Tina di Carlo and Sofia Singler, the exhibition benefitted from the close collaboration of staff members and graduate students. In particular, the curators would like to thank the members of the exhibition team, Ieva Davylute, Jessie Fyfe, Oscar Sangalli-Peña, Tsz Kin Jean-Marc Tang, as well as Alan Baldwin, Tao DuFour, Stan Finney, Ying Jin, Irit Katz, Zara Kückelhaus, Freddie Phillipson, Emily So, Maximilian Sternberg, and Minna Sunikka-Blank.
