Our MSA LIVE group is working in collaboration with The Tetley. The Tetley is a pioneering centre for contemporary art located in the stunning art deco headquarters of the former Tetley Brewery. From the heart of Leeds' South Bank, they create a platform for amazing emerging artists, present breathtaking free exhibitions and help communities and young people in Leeds find their creative voice.

Their 1930s building was transformed in 2013 to house unique gallery spaces, a learning studio for our award-winning participation programme, an artist residency studio, offices for creative businesses, a busy Bar & Kitchen and welcoming spaces for meetings and events, from performances and parties, to conferences and meetings. For artists, they are mentors and champions, providing support, investment and development time and space. To the public and our communities, they are a destination to explore new and exciting works, enjoy great food and take part in workshops, talks and events. Over 120,000 people each year visit the Tetley to discover, create, relax and learn. The Tetley is supported by Arts Council England, Carlsberg UK, Leeds City Council, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Garfield Weston Foundation.

Hi there, this is Lingxi from Atelier USE. In 2020, I completed my bachelor's degree in architecture degree and law at Dalian University. I like movies and photography. Looking forward to finishing this interesting project with you.

We had an excellent field trip to Tetley, Leeds. We've been able to identify the interesting historical art deco element on the site, and from there we can then develop our scheme.

Key Components of Cooperative Discussing
1. Individual accountability to maintain student responsibility and behaviour
2. Engagement and outcomes
3. Positive interdependence relating to each group member learning to depend on the rest of the group while working with others to complete the task
4. Positive face-to-face interactions involved with listening, encouraging shared decision-making, personal responsibilities and teaching how to give and receive feedback
5. Group processing to allow time for the team to discuss how well the group achieved their goal and maintained an effective working relationship

In this session, BA students are broken into groups of 3-4 and we place MIRO BOARD to let them share the ideas, related to their certain stories. Each group starts at a different scheme and is given a different way to show with. This strategy is useful because it causes students to work together in their groups but also within the whole team. It helps to hold all students accountable because they have to draw their ideas down and help their group members who are struggling to come up with something to write.
BA students showed great enthusiasm and creativity. Unlike the previous few days, everyone was more familiar with each other and the team was communicating more smoothly. Even with computer screens in the way, all the team are still full of energy.

The layout of the original restaurant space is not reasonable, and the arrangement of tables and chairs cannot accommodate customers to the maximum. The line between the bar area and the restaurant is somewhat blurred. Through the rearrangement of tables and chairs, the space style becomes more lively by adding green plants. On the other hand, the bar has added some island table Settings to better serve customers.
