Following the success of the first Brick Works events in Manchester last year, the Brick Development Association is delighted to partner again with the Manchester Student Society of Architecture (MSSA) and deliver the next regional Brick Works event in Manchester on Monday 21st October 2019, to present cutting-edge examples of contemporary brick architecture.
Hosted at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Manchester and featured in the MSSA’s Before You’re Thirty (BY30) series, the evening provided in-depth case studies presented by some of the most respected figures in the architectural community.
Rob Bearyman, Associate Director of Bennetts Associates, will present the Royal College of Pathologists: The Royal College of Pathologists has moved into its new 4,500-square-metre headquarters in East London, designed by Bennetts Associates. Offset by concrete and timber, brickwork features prominently in the building, which marks the final phase in the college’s relocation from a grade-one listed building in central London to contrastingly contemporary purpose-built premises.
Stuart McGrath, Associate Architects at OMI Architects, will present Baker Place: an apartment development in Hulme, Manchester, delivered for One Manchester, a social landlord with an established base and stock in the area, the scheme places strong emphasis on the well-being of residents through a focus on daylighting, landscape, generous private and communal external spaces and sustainability.
The third speaker will be announced shortly.
This highly informative evening offers an opportunity to network with peers, consider contemporary application and to add clay brick to your calendar of continuing professional development (CPD), all in a relaxed atmosphere.
