The NSA’s Contemporary Architecture Exhibition at 78 Derngate

The Northamptonshire Society of Architects (NSA) has organised an exhibition celebrating the work of small to medium sized architecture practices in Northamptonshire. The exhibition, funded by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), is now on display to the public and free to visit up until 14th April 2013.

Our practice is showcasing four projects for private and commercial clients and Lucy Collins, our year out student designed the logo and invitations for the exhibition. The preview evening held on 1st February was attended by eighty guests from across the county and Harry Rich, the RIBA’s Chief Executive will be visiting the exhibition in March.

The chosen venue at 78 Derngate is one of the key architectural sites situated within The Cultural Quarter of Northampton. Remodeled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916 for the Bassett Lowke family, the building stands as an icon for the Arts and Crafts movement. Details of the building, its opening times and location can be found here.

We have posted below some images to give you a taster of the exhibition. Please visit 78 Derngate to view the full display and help us celebrate the contemporary work of Northamptonshire’s architects’ practices.
