Group 05 1:1

Former disused Northlight Mill set to be the home of a new Arts and Cultural centre for Pendle, East Lancashire. It will be developed after a successful bid to Arts Council England by In-Situ, our collaborator, a non-profit arts organisation based in Pendle. The Garage, part of In-Situs current on-going projects, is set to be redeveloped as part of the wider Northlight Mill Masterplan into an Arts Exhibition space. Through a two week workshop of design and making, we aim to produce a 1:1 final output that will compliment the proposed open-air cinema at the Northlight Mill Arts Centre redevelopment. // Download Poster

An undulating wall that organically reflects the landscape with colours to match the doors of the new art studio in the Brierfield Mill - oranges on the ground, greens on first.

Posted 21 Apr 2018 20:53
Yesterday we were joined by our collaborator In-Situ and a group of brilliant Art and Media students from the College of Art in Pendle.

We started off with a design session, continuing from the previous day. The Art and Media students were then involved in commenting on the designs and highlighting key elements that could fit in well with the community in Brierfield. They then proposed a colour scheme derived from the natural shades of colour falling on the Brierfield Hill, along with a logo for the Brierfield Cinema.

Thank you for coming all the way to Manchester to join us! It was great to have you.

On Monday we expect the delivery of the cardboard tubes. Once they arrive we can start making the ticket booth! Excitiiiiiing! See you all on Monday!
Posted 21 Apr 2018 15:31
Great work on Friday to all. Thank you to our collaborator, not only to visit our design session and give some good comments but also bringing some guests from art college in Pendle. I think we learnt much from each other and great collaborating and sharing ideas today with the guests.
Posted 20 Apr 2018 21:14
Great drawing session today. Fantastic ideas and drawings once again. We are starting to see a finalised design coming up. The cardboard tubes are arriving on Monday, so we are lookin. forward to start making the ticket booth! Yeeeeah!

Well done for the afternoon design development session. We made a huge progress today, making decisions on the location of the booth/entrance, materiality, structure and so on. Looking forward to getting into one final design tomorrow from today's 15 different ideas!
Posted 19 Apr 2018 22:35
Today we explored ideas ideas around the design of the ticket booth. Small mockups were used to test lightweight materials and connections.
Posted 19 Apr 2018 22:27
Guys, have a look of the design processes. how can we develop the basic geometry components to some interesting forms?
Posted 19 Apr 2018 20:10
Good job everyone! Today it was a really long day, thanks for everyone's coming.We saw a lot of nice ideas and drawings today, and we will go more specific into our 1:1 model day by day. Tomorrow we aim to come up with the design to show more details, and we hope ideally we can start to make the digital and physical model next Monday. Have a good break tonight, tomorrow is important, because our cooperator and the guests from Brierfield local art college will join us, we need to show them some interesting ideas. Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow !
Posted 19 Apr 2018 20:01
It was a nice trip yesterday, especially for you guys who from the first and the second years. A good architect is not only about designing on the paper, how to design the construction details and how to solve the issues on site are also really important.

We are currently going through compiling the 'brief' and 'timetable' for the 2-week workshop.

We are also in constant communication with our collaborator and some possible sponsors in an attempt to secure a budget which we believe will really push the idea into implementation, and help create something of value for the community.

Group 5 keeps moving on!

Meeting today with Becky and the Technical Services Team, talking over our Risk Assessment form. It all looks good and positive!
