The MA Architecture + Urbanism course is the Manchester School of Architecture's taught postgraduate course which conducts research into how global cultural and economic forces influence contemporary cities. The design, functioning and future of urban situations is explored in written, drawn and modelled work which builds on the legacy of twentieth century urban theory and is directed towards the development of sustainable cities.

You are invited to come along and view new schemes for:
Mancunian Way / Oxford Road crossover
Whitworth Gateway

These new designs for the public realm have been developed by professional practices collaborating with student teams from MMU and the MA A+U students at Manchester School of Architecture.

The Exhibition will be taking place in the Foyer of the Manchester Technology Centre (Oxford House), Oxford Road, Manchester, M1 7ED, at the junction of Brancaster Road and Oxford Road, opposite MMU’s John Dalton Building.

CORRIDOR MANCHESTER will be gathering your feedback at the exhibition, during the following times;
Monday 28th May (12noon – 5pm)
Tuesday 29th May (10am – 6pm)
Wednesday 30th May (10am – 3pm)
Thursday 31st May (10am – 3pm)
Friday 1st June (10am – 3pm)

(The exhibition is closed during the Jubilee bank holiday weekend)
Wednesday 6th June (10am – 3pm)
Thursday 7th June (10am – 3pm)
Friday 8th June (10am – 3pm)

The student teams have worked alongside professional practices to formulate designs for these two areas. The practices are:

AEW Architects
Denton Corker Marshall
Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios
Formroom Architects
Camlin Lonsdale Landscape Architects
Landscape Projects

The student and professional teams were asked to consider what approaches might be possible for the transformation of these two key gateways to Oxford Road. The Cross City Bus scheme, has now been funded and will be taking place in this area. Decisions on the public realm scheme to be implemented will rest with Transport for Greater Manchester and the various landowners, who will be reflecting on designs from this competition and other sources, with potential funding being a significant factor to be considered.
