Traces of Peter Rice at Naughton Gallery

Creativity Month continues with Queen's University exhibition and open day dedicated to the famed engineer

Creativity Month 2014 is in full swing, with events taking place across the country in celebration of the creative industries.

The current exhibition at the Naughton Gallery at Queen's University, Traces of Peter Rice, is fittingly dedicated to the life and work of acclaimed Queen's civil engineering graduate Peter Rice, designer of the Sydney Opera House roof and the Pompidou Centre in Paris.

This week the School of Planning, Architecture and Civil Engineering at Queen's hosted Engineering Imagination, a unique hands on educational experience for year 12 and 13 pupils.

The students were given a guided tour of the Traces of Peter Rice exhibition and took part in a Mecanno Challenge, group activities in structure design, and a bus tour of some of Belfast's most eye-catching examples of imaginative architecture, including the Titanic Belfast building.

Creativity Month is a celebration of creativity and the Creative Industries in the north of Ireland every March.

An initiative of the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure, Creativity Month is held to stimulate new thinking and help creative people, creative ideas and creative businesses emerge and flourish.
