Righton Building, All Saints, Manchester Metropolitan University

4 May to 14 May 2010

Come along to the private view 4 May from 18:30 until 20:30

Involving students from Manchester, Venice, Barcelona and Catania.

This collaborative project was funded by a grant from the Lifelong Learning, Erasmus Intensive Programme and it started with a two-week international student design workshop in the early autumn of 2009. The workshop proposals were then exhibited at a conference at the IUAV in November 2009 and will form the basis of a travelling exhibition that will be in Manchester in the spring of 2010. The design workshop was based in Venice and the students and their tutors lived in the city for the two week period. The results of the workshop, and a compliation of papers written by the lecturers who were directly involved in the project will be published in May 2010. Visit the project website.

The project also features on the website European Higher Education Area : celebrating a decade of UK engagement

The exhibition is an event of the Manchester Architecture and Design Festival
