If you have been walking around the Mile End campus recently, you may have noticed changes taking place on the construction hoardings. Maria d’Amico, a QMUL graduate and artist, has illustrated over 50 buildings from around our campuses and the local area to feature on capital projects construction hoardings.
The illustrations, which feature many of our buildings and local landmarks such as tube stations, St Paul’s Cathedral, Canary Wharf and The Royal London Hospital, aim to provide an exciting set of images, placing QMUL in the heart of our community. They also provide a standard approach for the 400m of construction hoardings that are in place at the Mile End campus. The design approach will be adopted for future construction works taking place at any of our campuses.
In addition to the illustrations, the hoardings feature project panels including key information and artist’s impressions of the ongoing work in the Engineering Building and the Graduate Centre. There is also directional signage for the Students’ Union facilities to help students make their way around the campus.
Maria D’Amico, who has also designed the front covers for undergraduate prospectuses for the past two years, commented on her illustrations: “Although it was challenging to draw all of these buildings, it was a pleasure and wonder to realise how diverse the buildings on the campuses are. Queen Mary really is lucky to have such a lovely environment for students and staff to learn and work.”
