Group 15 Re[Modelling] Our Town Hall

Agenda: ‘Our Town Hall’ is an ongoing project with Manchester City Council to repair and upgrade Manchester Town Hall so that it is suitable for modern use. Designed by Alfred Waterhouse and completed in 1877, the Grade I listed building is a key part of Manchesters’ built heritage. Our agenda is to investigate how modelling can be used as a tool to interpret, develop and communicate a design concept. In collaboration with Purcell, students will test and refine proposed design strategies to challenge and embrace the conflicts between heritage and inclusivity for the Town Hall. Aligning with our atelier ethos of design by model making, this will be delivered through a series of models in the B15 workshop to communicate the organisation of space. // Download Poster
