Models in Use: BBC Coverage of RIBA at Manchester School of Art


Recently the Manchester School of Art’s Benzie Building has been nominated for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2014. The buildling serves as the new main entranceway to Manchester School of art and of course the Architecture studios.

With some interesting coverage and video of the building, this link from the BBC is of particular interest to the subject.

Part way down the page you will find a video interview with Keith Bradley and Tom Jarman of Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios who designed the building. They use two models of the site and building to explain their design. Using models to explain design in this way can be really useful to convey your ideas to a group or individual as is clearly seen in the BBC video.

RIBA Exhibition: The Brits Who Built the Modern World

Yesterday myself and Jim visited the ‘Brits Who Built the Modern World’ exhibition at the RIBA building in London. The exhibition explores how the key British architects have evolved to become highly sort after worldwide. You may have seen the accompanying BBC series that was on recently. Key to the display and narrative of the exhibition are models of classic projects. To find out more click here.
