We’ll be posting up our reviews & photos of the University of Portsmouth CCi Graduate Show all this week, looking at the graduate work from the different courses we visited on Friday plus the Strong Island award winners from this year. We’ll also be catching up with last year’s winners too to see what they’ve been up to over the next week or two.
First up though, you couldn’t help but be impressed in the Eldon Building courtyard with this wooden installation by the Architecture team. The plan is to keep it there for a while and the wood should age with weather and time, making it a real centrepiece for the future. The open ended sphere shape works like a form of lens, framing the building beyond. I did ask if this might tour the city…the thought of looking through it out over the Solent could be pretty special.
