[Re]generating Manchester: processing post-industrial landscapes.
Essay and selection of work from msa graduate and postgraduate students.
Extract from exhibition catalogue:
The projects showcased here therefore consider how connections are made into the superorganism of the contemporary city and propose new cultural conditions. They explore the nature of the post-industrial landscape by analysis and synthesis of its conditions, leading to greater understanding of the contemporary context alongside appropriate design strategies and interventions. These projects explore the power of copying, whether using the iconic terraced housing of the industrial era as a vehicle for reinterpretation, redefining the spatial and cultural experience of the city, or using algorithms to reiterate logical solutions in response to spatial performance or policy. All the work illustrated here demonstrates the creativity, innovation and skills required to engage with the post-industrial landscape whilst offering new possibilities to [re]generate it.
