archiGRAD Summer School Presentation

Today's xsite is Anna ...

We have come to the end of our archiGRAD Summer School here at xsite. The Summer School was a pilot Newcastle University project, developed in partnership with Northern Architecture that provided office based experience for architecture students. Adam, Emily, Kristina, Marta, Oleg and Rumen have been with us for 6 weeks working on a project master planning the High Bridge area of Newcastle.

Last week saw their final presentation of ideas take place in our new Ouse Street venue the Ouse Street Arts Club. They ran through a host of impressive ideas for the route from Central Station through Pudding Chare and along High Bridge to Pilgrim Street, including cinemas, light shows, parks and artwork.

We hope that fruits of their labour can get wider exposure with people in the city. It was a great for us to have them around for the summer, and for the students to gain valuable office experience. The pilot scheme seems to have been a success all round so we look forward to next year...
