MArch student Lucy's work to be exhibited in Glasgow alongside COP26

Lucy is currently a student on the MArch Architecture course, in her final year. Her studio project from last year, “CODA”, will be exhibited as part of the “Imagine Glasgow” event that runs in the centre of Glasgow for the duration of COP26.

The exhibition will run for the duration of the COP26 conference taking place in Glasgow. The exhibition itself is located in the heart of Glasgow and will feature work from current students and recent graduates across the country. 

I am enthralled to be a part of the Imagine Glasgow COP26 exhibition. CODA embodies the bold and progressive nature of its setting, Sheffield, which is my home city. The project retrofits the existing Fountain Precinct concrete monolith in Sheffield city centre to become a climate action centre. The scheme uses novelty and not controversy to engage the public with the climate emergency through unconventional methods, including theatre, food and art. The designed ambition for the project was to spread knowledge and become the next host of the COP27 conference, thereby making it more special to be a part of this exhibition.

Lucy’s work depicts a future COP event taking place in Sheffield city centre and how the city’s design can respond in a sustainable way to future needs.

It’s exciting for Lucy’s work to be selected for this exhibition that coincides with COP26. At Sheffield School of Architecture we explore how architecture can address the climate emergency holistically, through technology, the arts and community action combined. Lucy's project does all this by retrofitting a major building in Sheffield city centre into a landmark climate centre that harnesses creativity and innovation to mobilise climate action at a civic scale.
