Full text not available from this repository.


Temporary installation located in the Courtyard at The Manchester Museum as part of the summer events programme in 2010. Intended as both a physical and contemplative experience the courtyard is revealed as an abstraction of the surroundings. Materials and weather are revealed through subtle reflections reducing the scale of the courtyard to an accessible human dimension. The structure forms a public room where people can sit and relax, allowing a few moments of quiet contemplation. The structure was designed and fabricated in the Faculty of Art and Design workshops at Manchester Metropolitan University by Master of Architecture students from the Prototype Unit led by Ming Chung and Nick Tyson. The project was supported by a research award from MIRIAD at MMU.
