Another TERM is OVER

Another term is finally over. I hope it must be an fruitful one for all the international students especially. For me personally it was an ultimate learning experience. My Environmental Design module finally came to an end yesterday with an exhibition at Highfields School at Matlock. All our proposals from 11 groups were displayed there for visitors, and it was a real joy for all of us being a part of it.

At Highfields School...

And I wish all the Groups of STB (Sustainable Tall Building) module 'All the Best' for the 'isover' competition. They really worked well and hard. Sorry for not being aware of other modules, I hope people will come out and post something in the FORUM page to put some light.

See you in the 'Spring Term' lectures.

History of 'Paton House'

This 1884 structure was built for Samuel Herrick Sands by Evans and Jolly. Samuel was a lace and hosiery manufacturer as well as a director of National Telephone Company and Nottingham Patent Brick Company and  also chairman of Nottingham  Joint Stock Bank and Nottingham Suburban Railway Company.
This brick building 'West Hill House' has a large canopy over the main entrance and Baroque style interior.

Herbert D Snook acquired the house in 1904 and named it 'The Cedars'. He was a director of his family clothing firm, J Snook and Company. During his 40 years of resident, the cottage style lodge house at Derby road was occupied by his chauffeurs. His widow later sold it to 'Paton Congregational College'.

It was named 'Paton House' in honor of J B Paton, founder of the theological college, 'Paton Congregational College'. The college was moved to Manchester in 1968 and the building was taken over by University's Department of Architecture which is now 'Department of Architecture and Built Environment'.

Uploading photographs in the 'Forum'

'Insert Image' tab at the message box title bar is the easiest way to add photographs in your post direct from the computer. But if you want to upload photographs of a particular size then you need to use a third party website like 'photobucket' or 'tinypic' to upload the photograph first and then to put the imge link or html code of the perticular image to your post...


Very easy it is!
