City Ideas Studio: Energy - The Private View

Wednesday 9 December saw the official launch and private view of our Energy residency at the City Ideas Studio. Opened and introduced by Assistant Mayor for Place, Councillor Simon Cook, guests gathered to discuss and find out about how we can produce better, cleaner energy and use less of it.

The exhibition showcases work and projects from our studio partner Solarsense, with local energy projects by Bristol City Council, Bristol Energy Network, Centre for Sustainable Energy, The GreenRegister, Max Fordham and others, as well as provocations by staff and students from the UWE Department of Architecture and the Built Environment.

There was also the opportunity to find out more about the Bristol Child Friendly City initiative in our pop-up foyer display. The Bristol Child Friendly City Network,  comprising the Architecture CentrePlaying OutRoom 13 Hareclive and the University of Bristol, hosted Bristol’s first Child Friendly City Symposium as part of the Thinking Futures Festival in November. The symposium brought together people from different backgrounds to share thoughts and experiences contributing to the beginnings of a vision for Bristol’s future as a more child friendly city. Adults and children worked  together to agree further calls to make Bristol more child friendly. Some of these outcomes are on display in an illustration by Laurie Stansfield, until the 24 January.

City Ideas Studio: Energy is on display until 24 January, open 11-5 Wednesday-Friday and 12-5 Saturday-Sunday. Please note the Architecture Centre gallery is closed for the festive period from 21 December, reopening on Wed 6 January 2016.
