Group 25

Our team collaborates with the organization 'Building Bridges, Pendle'. Our aim is to regenerate a multifunctional event place, below the offices of a charity’s office in Nelson, into an exciting space to benefit the community. We have given the opportunity to redesign contemporary and innovating concept schemes that would explore the idea of coming together from different backgrounds and cultures.

Activities and Skills: The creative aspect of our project will give the opportunity to the students to develop and present design ideas to the team and our collaborator. This will allow them to evolve their collaborative, technical and personal skills.

Specifically, the development of knowledge of digital software such as these of Adobe suite, AutoCAD and Revit will help the team to create an exciting design proposal, based on coherent research and that will be presented in a good manner. This will be achieved through small workshops that will be organized in the future and that will assist the students to acquire more knowledge on how to use the above software.

Social Impact: The aim of this project is to provide a feeling of welcomeness throughout the year. With the use of colors, modularity and a sustainable approach, the project is going to create diversity in the neighbourhood. It will be equipped with modular spaces that can have different functions depending on the needs of the organization.
