    Coming to the end of the 4th year Architectural History course - Modern Ideas and Architecture students were invited to pool their efforts from the lectures and tutorials to produce a film study of contemporary Caribbean architecture using examples found in Jamaica.

    Whilst the topic was fairly open to interpretation the students were expected to succinctly express the research relative to the chosen themes citing factual data as well as a correlation to the previous reading assignments.

    Along with the film study, students were expected on a weekly basis to provide a synopsis of their building or area of focus, story boards, and posters presenting their themes.

    the themes covered were

    International Style in Jamaica
    Contemporary Jamaican Architecture ::: the look of the Old
    Contemporary Jamaican Architecture ::: transcending tradition
    Generated by a response to climate
    Container architecture
    Neo-Classicism Island style
    The Search for Jamaican Utopia

    below is a sample of the posters

      Jeez, David, you're right - the spam here is getting a bit out of control.
