Campus : Manchester Modernist Society with Jonathan Hitchen.

A Collaborative project with Manchester Modernist Society as part of RIBA's love architecture festival in June 2012. The project was funded by Miriad and Cornerhouse and utilised design work from designer Jonathan Hitchen, as well as then final year Graphic Design students Lisa Barlow and Nick Yates.

Manchester Modernist Society spent 2 weeks as "uninvited artists in residence". Campus Day aimed to " unilaterally declare and define the former UMIST campus as Manchester's first Modernist Conservation area!

The Campus event was "shaped by design". Campus is like a performance, an interactive event, and the artefacts produced through design allow the viewer to converse with and question their environment.
