[Intimate Cities]

Following the successful completion of the MA A + U course, I have decided to continue my final year of study by joining the [Intimate Cities] atelier.

Intimate Cities argues that capitalism’s rapacious commodification of urban space has exiled the people and programmes that do not conform to the rules of the regulated city to the urban fringe. The Unit is concerned with hybrid and multi-layered space that recognizes the culturally diverse characters, situations and programmes that add richness to the contemporary city.

More information on the atelier’s ethos can be found here.

This year, the ‘edgeland’ we are exploring is the River Irwell between Victoria Station and Pomona Dock.
