Sanderson, L., 2013.
A collection of 24 collaborative projects in the city collectively named 'Crossings'. Each event has been created and delivered by groups of 3 or 4 students in the MArch and has been formulated with four key elements, agenda, collaborator, production and mastercraft. In short each project was required to have an agenda to be developed alongside an external collaborator which has an output manifest in the city.
<< Agenda >> Idea, Exploration, Connection, Study, Analysis, Space, Examination, Enquiry ...?
<< Collaborator >> Architect, Artist, Bricklayer, Charity, Client, Contractor, Organisation, Society ...
?<< Production >> Exhibition, Installation, Symposium, Workshop, Procession, Protest, Legislation ...?
<< Mastercraft >> Skill, Drawing, Modelling, Fabrication, Building, Curating, Communicating ...? ?
