Reflections II: Roker Pier

Panneels, Inge and Jordan, Tom (2018) Reflections II: Roker Pier. In: Roker Pier Symposium + Glass Heap Challenge, 25 - 26 May 2018, National Glass Centre.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


This e-book details the concept of the Reflections ii: Roker Pier project which took place during 2017/18 at the University of Sunderland as a site-specific student project, an international symposium and a Glass Heap Challenge: a day of making at the Roker beach, overlooking the Roker Pier Lighthouse.

The ethos of the project was to re-conside industrial materials in a post-industrial era, as exemplified by the Roker Pier Lighthouse itself; an industrial building now repurposed as a tourist destination.

This project received support from the Heritage Lottery Funding (HLF) through Sunderland City Council and University of Sunderland research funding.
