Blackburn, Lancashire, Nov 2015- ongoing
muf architecture/art work in the public realm- making public spaces and making spaces public - built work includes landscapes, streets, buildings, art commissions, projects both within and outside institutions. muf adds unsolicited research to every project to expand incomplete briefs, read more at muf.co.uk (start with *disclosure)*.
The collective will be based in Blackburn working with women to design and build the arts and resource space onboard a new boat that will launch in March 2016. Their residency marks the start of a longer journey together into the architecture of womens' place, drawing on their extensive past work and unique contribution to architectural/art practice.
A long room 2m by 18m and 7 moorings over 2 years
The relationship between this floating room and its street (canal), neighbourhood and city is muf’s remit alongside how (through the adjustment of an existing boat) a shared "room of one’s own" is both a place of retreat and generosity.
