SALTHOUSE 12 At CLEY
We are thrilled to have been selected at part of the North Norfolk Exhibition Project to exhibit at this year's exhibition 'Aisles and Air' to be held at the stunning setting of St Margaret of Antioch's church at Cley. Our installation, 'Sea Scales' will be sited at the church entrance and is based on sound mirrors seen in past coastal defences.
We are sitting in on the Norfolk Association of Architect's judging panel again this year to find the best of Norfolk's well crafted buildings. A great selection of buildings have been submitted and over the next few weeks, we and other judges will be visiting sites and looking at the standard of craft and workmanship to see who will be worthy recepients of awards.
The results will be published in July.
The RIBA has introduced a new festival of Architecture called 'Love Architecture'. This follows on from our own festivals FANN09 and FANN X1, which we supported and were part of the team that helped to put them together. Takes place this June..
The second Festival of Architecture Norfolk and Norwich (FANN-X1) ended at the end of October last year, after three weeks brim full of events which included exhibitions, talks, annual lecture, films, art trails, workshops, festival dinner and for the first time in the Festival, an architecture inspired Pecha Kucha evening.
FANN-X1 - NUCA
McArthur Tring, as part of FANN-X1 worked with architects, students and tutors from the Film and Moving Image Course to produce a series of short films based on The Forum and The Sainsbury Centre building at UEA. Some fantastic short films, illustrating individual and different responses to these buildings were shown at the FANN-X1 exhibition at The Forum, at Cinema City during the film festival and at the Pecha Kucha event.
We ran three workshops during the Festival together with the brilliant SCVA education departmen who paired us with artists who had an interest in ways of looking and expressing architecture
Ages from 6-16 had an introduction to ways of looking at buildings and cities from the context of the Sainsbury building using found materials and jelly.
11 BAR & KITCHEN
A Grade 11 Listed former solicitor's office building on Upper King Street Norwich, now a bar and kitchen, the building has been sensitively remodelled to incorporate the high level of services needed for restaurant use while retaining period features.
