This year, 21 postgraduate students at Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) have been working as part of the MMP team to co-create age-friendly designs for Hackney Wick in East London.
21 students have participated: 14 from the Architecture (MArch) programme; and seven from the Landscape Architecture (MLA) programme.
Following two days of site visits and interactive activities with local older people in Hackney, and a public exhibition in February 2015, the work they have created forms a rich visual overview of plans for an age-friendly Hackney Wick, with drawings, models, plans, videos and much more.
We would love you to come along to the annual ECA Degree Show at Edinburgh College of Art, where you can see a large selection of the work in a beautiful space overlooking Edinburgh Castle. The show runs from Saturday 30th May 2015 to Sunday 7th June 2015. Entry is FREE.
For full details, including opening times, visit the ECA website, where you can also read a great article (written by Sculpture student, and ECA website intern, Alice Chandler) on why our students chose to get involved in MMP and what they’ve learned from the experience.
