Working alongside Grimshaw Architects my research explores the future of higher education and its relationship with industry and community. The scheme for the Manchester Engineering Campus Development is a strategic hub for connected learning and world class research. The project presents a new model for fluid learning evolved from a strategy examining current teaching delivery; the new model is a symbiosis between community, education and industry. The building houses traditional learning spaces alongside areas designed to induce innovative informal learning and cross discipline/arena connections.

The final image is of Interstice; a competition winning sculpture designed and built to commemorate WW1 at Dunham Massey, a National Trust Property. The sculpture is exploration of materiality and comprises 283 unique concrete cubes, each representing a soldier who stayed at the stately home during the war.
