Event Schedule

Throughout the fortnight we will be working towards designing three different proposals for the poster display case. We will consistently work towards the final output, a comprehensive drawing package. Times of group study and design development will be supplemented with visits and seminars, delivered by the event coordinators.

We really want the two weeks to be relaxed, creative and productive!

Our first superb Event 2019 presentation last week in Manchester School of Architecture! Thank you to all who attended, your energy was amazing, and most of all, thank you to @BeckySobell for making this all possible.

We are looking forward to work side by side with you guys to explore ideas beyond the discipline of architectural education.

As a team we will be designing a museum grade display case for a selection of the c.8000 piece international poster collection held by the Special Collections Museum in the MMU Library. The collection doesn’t have an existing display unit and is therefore invisible to the public for most of the time, we would like to change that!

Our final output will be a detailed drawing package of our proposal, which we will submit to the special collections team at the end of the event. The drawing package will include: GA plans of the spaces the case could occupy, detailed drawings of our proposal and visualisations and diagrams of how users will interact with the collection.

We will be simultaneously developing both our creative and detail design skills by efficiently following the design process from problem to concept to solution. In order to develop these skills, there will be appropriate seminars led by the master's students which will go alongside the project development.
