Riva del Carbon # 4793,
Exhibition open until 25 November
Part of the Venice Biennale
What We Do Here is a film, sponsored by FCBStudios, which explores how aspiring architects at Manchester School of Architecture approach various stages of modelmaking as they grapple with materials, methods and machines to ultimately reveal the ways in which the models inform their individual growth and understanding. In addition to this it examines the ways that staff integrate practical making into their requirements for student assignments and within their own research projects. A preview trailer can be viewed here.
The film will premiere as part of 16th International Venice Architecture Biennale Sessions at the Venice Arsenale on June 29th. The screening will be followed by presentations and a discussion on the importance of modelmaking making in design by FCBStudios Partner Simon Doody, and furniture maker Hugh Miller, and chaired by Professor Tom Jefferies Head of Manchester School of Architecture.
The film will then take up a 5 month residence at Palazzo Bembo as part of the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE Collateral Biennale exhibition. What We Do Here will be screened on repeat during all opening hours at Palazzo Bembo near the famous Rialto Bridge.
