Noise Testing Aggregate models. 5th Year group Project

Aggregate Tests These 5th year MA Architecture students are using various aggregate mixes to create a series of test pieces for potential facade finishes. The blocks are being used to test how sound changes depending on the block being used. Any obvious changes such as increased or decreased pitch will be noted and taken into account when discussing the potential used of such finishes as external facades.We should be seeing more developments in this project in the future.

Project by Sophie Samuels, Ellis Murphy, Dev Coll, Ben Porter and Flo Fernandes.

Dwelle Project

Some of you will be familiar with the Dwelle project by Manchester based Architect Ric Frankland. The eco home project has been on going for several years with this year taking things to another level thanks to the half scale cross section model built in our workshop! The model was built over 2 weeks and gave students and first-hand insight into the full scale construction of these contemporary Eco homes.

The project has gone on to be displayed at events at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall and the Manchester Arndale and will continue to travel further afield in the next month… stay tuned for more on this!
