Event details

Curated by MapNottingham, a collaborative project between Nottingham Trent University, Sneinton Alchemy and Carrington Tenants and Residents Association, the project aims to identify and debate architecture as material culture and a symbol of local identity.

The group see the city not just as buildings, but as a place of collective relations, historical layers, flows, movements, emotions, and political and social activity. Through a variety of public experiments, meetings and interviews the group explored how people identify themselves with the built environment.

The findings of their research is on display at Nottingham Central Library from 6 - 29 December 2017.
