Souto, A. ORCID: 0000-0003-0110-0137 and Spasojevic, D., 2016. Mapping Nottingham’s identity. MapNott Exhibition and Workshops, Phase 1, Nottingham Central Library, Nottingham, September 2016.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Souto, A. and Spasojevic, D.

Description: MapNottingham is a collaborative project between Nottingham Trent University, Sneinton Alchemy and Carington Tenants and Residents Association. Our main objective is to identify and open a debate about architecture as material culture and symbol of local identity. We believe that this can be achieved through research that shapes lives and society, working in close collaboration with local communities. We observe the city not only as buildings, but as a place of collective relations, historical layers, flows, movements, emotions, political and social activity. Therefore, we are mapping Nottingham's identity by trying to synchronise the history, bringing to life forgotten memories and creating new ones, and thus inspiring people to shape their futures. Through variety of public experiments, meetings, interviews and other forms of public engagement we are exploring how people identify themselves with the built environment. We want to generate public value through the identification with places, and support their potential through the use of architecture and design.
