2018 is the 10th anniversary of the opening of the RIBA award winning John Lennon Art & Design Building. This iconic building became the new home for Liverpool School of Art & Design after 183 years in the Hope Street based Mechanics School of Art.
The anniversary has given us opportunity to pause and reflect, not only on the last 10 years, but also to think about the future. So this year we have asked our final year students as they are about to embark on their professional careers to answer the interview question we all love to hate… “where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
Please join us, by contributing your own answer on this website. Responses will be exhibited during the degree show.
More about the John Lennon Art & Design Building
The six-storey building was designed by Rick Mather Architects and offers purpose built art and design facilities for over 1000 creative art students, with seminar rooms, workshops, cafe, exhibition spaces and stunning roof terraces with spectacular city views. The building was named after the school’s most famous student, John Lennon, who attended the College of Art in the fifties, and the building has become a key landmark of the city centre sitting next to the Metropolitan cathedral and the Wellington Rooms on Mount Pleasant. Later this year the school will be exhibiting some of sketches depicting the building work being undertaken between 2005-8, and the 2018 Degree Show will be the start of the 10th anniversary celebrations.
