City Ideas Studio: Resources

We are a few weeks into our third City Ideas Studio residency, Resources, where we are addressing the question: How can we make more of the things we have? Visit the gallery 11-5 Wednesday-Friday and 12-5 Saturday-Sunday to explore all aspects of resourcefulness.

Seat made by Round Wood Design, based at Bower
Ashton Woodyard
The exhibition explores not only how best to use finite resources such as building
materials, land and money, but also how cities should harness the powerful resource
of human inventiveness and action.

There is a lot to find out about and explore:

  • BuroHappold Engineering's range of global and local resourceful initiatives
  • Our touch screen where you can learn about our previous exhibitions, projects and organisations that are exploring solutions for a sustainable future, we’re gradually adding all our City Ideas Studio content onto the touch screen so have a read up on our previous residencies.
  • Watch videos and read up on local resourceful projects including: Bristol Green Doors, Bristol ReUse Network and Ecomotive SNUG Homes
  • Take part in our SNUG Homes family activity - can you design a 'snug' home (a compact and environmentally friendly house)
  • Add your comments and ideas to our map on resourceful projects in Bristol
  • View UWE Department of Architecture and the Built Environment's installation, that offers a thought-provoking response to the exhibition theme
  • Learn about Bower Ashton Woodyard and Round Wood Design and try out the wood furniture
  • Visit our foyer to learn about the Architecture Centre's Shape My City #livebuild sustainable building project

Visit the Architecture Centre website for information on events and exhibitions coming soon.
