Architecture students on a one day trip in Wakefield
First Year BA (Hons) Architecture students visited the Hepworth Wakefield Art Gallery and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on 8 April.
In the morning, students visited the Hepworth Wakefield. The new art gallery opened on Wakefield’s historic waterfront in 2011 and was designed by acclaimed British architect David Chipperfield – winner of the 2007 RIBA Stirling Prize for Architecture. In the afternoon, the trip continued to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, exploring works by James Turrell, Giuseppe Penone, and many others, and enjoying the new visitor centre, realised by Feilden Fowles architects.
The trip was organised as part of the Design Studio module AD1.2.
