A guest blog post by Laura Sherliker from Purcell Architects.
Back in February, Architects, Purcell led a public consultation event at Manchester Museum with the support of the Museums Learning and Engagement team. The event saw 250 visitors of all ages, along with key stakeholders have the opportunity to engage with the architect’s development plans and understand the nature of the proposed works for the Courtyard redevelopment.
Using 3D models of the proposed building work, architects drawings and 1:1 samples of interior and exterior element of the building, visitors had the opportunity to ask questions about the nature of the works and make comments on the proposed plans.
The team where hugely encouraged by the positive response. The general public welcome the investment in the new galleries and visitor spaces proposed for completion in 2020.
