  1. Yup i graduated with BArch (Hons) now doing my diploma in architecture, still at nottingham!

  5. Hi Everybody! i'm an Architecture student at the University of Nottingham, and I am about to embark on a project to redevelop the highfields paddling pool, while also adding an outdoor swimming pool, to create the UK's only existing lido.

I much appreaciate the help! ta!
