2015 marks 45 years of the Kantorowich B.15 modelmaking workshop at The University of Manchester.
The B.15:45 exhibition is a retrospective look at the last 45 years of modelmaking in Architectural education and showcases decades of work by former students.
Modelmaking has always been a crucial tool in Architectural education at Manchester. From its earliest configuration, the Manchester School of Architecture has called on models as part of student submissions and presentations.
Why is this? What do models give to the study of Architecture and why has their use continues to endure despite the fast paced changes in the industry?
In B.15:45, we look at the wide range of work produced and give an insight into the application of each piece in the design process since the establishment of the B.15 workshop at The University of Manchester in 1970.
A documentary video was produced alongside the collection, which includes contributions from current and former staff and students and emphasizes the contemporary importance of creating physical models despite and alongside the advances in digital modelling.
B.15:45 is located on the first floor of the Humanities Bridgeford Street Building at The University of Manchester.
It is free to attend and open to visitors 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday throughout 2014 and 2015.
