|The Architecture of the Profession (Copyright: Luke Butcher)|
I have also started a new course at the Manchester School of Architecture: the Bachelor of Architecture (BArch) programme. I have entered into the final year of the programme and will be working in the [Re-Map]ICU unit, with project work focused on Stoke-on-Trent. Two project blogs have been set up, one concerned with the wider interests of the unit this year (see here) and a project blog documenting the area of Fenton specifically, both of which I will be contributing to (see here). As a unit [Re_Map] is preoccupied with data, mapping, networks and visualization and is interested in the contemporary city as a political, economic and cultural hybrid in flux rather than as a fixed place.
