Group 19 Turned on its Head

PRODUCTION The first stage of the Events programme will be highlighting important problems that face Manchester in particular with regard to an ageing population and fit for purpose homes. This will be an opportunity too combine with the ‘Spinning Perceptions’ group to work collaboratively in curating the content of the exhibition. The exhibition itself will be displayed primarily in a key public venue in Manchester but will travel across the city to various symposiums and conferences. This exposure will mean that your work is seen by a wide variety of people particularly interested in current social issues such as ageing and housing. A final report is being produced to summarise our research methodology, findings and outputs. This will be a public-facing document, that forms part of the Mayor of Manchester’s Age Friendly Challenge, enabling propositional dialogue between a whole cross-section of factors which influence today’s society. You have the opportunity to contribute towards this professional paper, and through this you will learn valuable skills in editing, graphic design, and publishing which you can apply to your portfolio. // Download Poster

Working on a design of a game for Community Engagement event. We tried to combine the co-housing features from MSAP PS1 design with the BINGO game, so the winner could get his ideal house typology and living environment. We created a brief simple bingo chart to calibrate and demonstrate it.
