Between Cathedral and Wild Sea: A Journey in the North is exhibition of photography by William Burgess, produced as part of the WCCA Stuart Murphy Travel Award 2014.

Between Cathedral and Wild Sea presents the product of a cycle journey through Northern Europe photographing with a comparative, classificatory approach seven cathedrals and churches.

This research seeks to explore a shared character of a Northern, Gothic spirit present within these religious buildings.

The WCCA Travel Award has been offered annually since 2008 by the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects with the support of the Royal Institute of British Architects. The Award provides an international travel grant to a student or a group of students enrolled in a RIBA-validated Part 2 course in a School of Architecture in the Greater London area. The objective of the Award is to allow a student or a group of students to conduct research on the topic and in the location of their choice. It is hoped that the research will enrich the Award holder’s studies in the field of Architecture contributing to the development of their course work as well as to the advancement of architectural knowledge.
