Look out for our posters now displayed around the Benzie building looking for a team to represent The Manchester School of Architecture at the upcoming 2018 RIBA Northern Soul Charrette.

We're looking for a team of 10 students from across all years of the MSA to be part of our exciting plans for the day - Friday 20th April, with a surprise venue and brief to be revealed!

You'll be joining students from 13 northern schools of architecture so this will be a fantastic opportunity for networking as well as an enjoyable day of team building and designing!

If you'd like to get involved, email before Friday 13th April

An important part of our EVENT involves working closely with the RIBA, specifically their regional team who are located at RIBA North, Mann Island, Liverpool.

The success of the 2018 RIBA Northern Soul Charrette relies on keeping in regular contact with the team, and making sure they are updated on all our plans for the day and letting them know if we need anything from them- and vice versa.

At the moment, we are liasing with the regional director team to gather interest for the charrette from the 13 northern schools of architecture that will be involved on the day.

Our team created a poster for the RIBA to publish to all schools as a way of gathering interest from students with the respective schools, with our EVENTS team being the organisers for pulling together a team representing the MSA- before the deadline of Friday 13th April.

In just over 6 weeks time we will be welcoming 13 northern schools of architecture to Manchester to take part in the 2018 RIBA Northern Soul Charrette!

We look forward to circulating our promotional poster around the schools so they can gather interest from students who wish to take part, of which there will be a maximum of 10 from each school- representing all 5 years of study.

The success of previous years of the Northern Soul Charrette has been the way in which the subject and location of the brief remains a surprise up until the day of the charrette itself. For this reason we have worked closely with the RIBA regional team over in Liverpool to put together a poster that gives very little away to students.
