Hi, I’m Jamie Reed and I joined MSA in September 2020, graduating from The Liverpool School of Architecture before working at Glenn Howells Architects. Craft, materials and graphic communication are all aspects of architecture I enjoy as well as theory and discourse. In my spare time I enjoy skateboarding and pottery.

Workshop 1: Landscaping and Orientation
The aim is to understand how the park can integrate its self into the existing topography of the park. Aspects such as position within the park are key as well as any potential alterations to the immediate topography and surface treatment should be considered, if deemed necessary.

Workshop 2: Drainage and Water
A shed should be able to with stand the elements (especially in a rainy city such as Manchester!) so this should be considered a design opportunity. Can there be an expression in which the water may act as an architectural event? Placement of the water tap is also crucial.

Workshop 3: Sunlight and Passive energy strategies
Students here should ideally engage in environmental aspects that are lowtech and rely on form and simple design, heating/ cooling, water collection and ventilation should be considered in creating comfortable environment, as well as an awareness of potentially sustainable construction practices.

Workshop 4: Social/community impact
Here, the focus will be on using the shed as a social tool within the local community and its existing context. Is this shed multi-purpose? Is it inclusive and represent a diverse range of needs? Does it enhance and integrate with the existing users of the park? Can it bring new functions?
