Sheep, Industry and the City: Weaving a space of art production in Bradford

Contextual engraving collage DRAFT.jpg

Historical analysis and contextualised thought of place and narrative informed each phase of our design. Focussing on the identity Bradford had gained as a northern settlement and the type of historical events that shaped its landscape. This historic identity, which was irreplaceable from connections with the wool and worsted industry kept us focussed on working with an existing building by adding new components for use as a art gallery. As such, our project becomes just as much about this process of historic identity in the city of Bradford than just it’s finished product.

In collaboration with Jonathan Barker.
