Stevenson Square Graffiti

#WeLoveMCR

This week has been a sombre one following news of Monday evenings events at the Manchester MEN Arena.

Although business has returned to normal for some, our heartfelt thoughts go out to the families and friends of the people affected by the incident, and recognise the hard work of the emergency services and the local people who bravely and kindly responded to the aftermath.

Despite the atmosphere and the difficulties – within hours’ stories and images started to emerge that captured acts of kindness, strength & sprit of the people Manchester. The outhouse in Stevenson Square is a popular spot for graffiti artists and they were quick to show support.

The #WeLoveMCR charity campaign has raised almost a million pounds for the victims’ families. A just giving page has been set up where people can donate here:

On Tuesday, Our Studio decided to reflect and contemplate quietly over at the Manchester City Art Gallery.

The team took some time out for a relaxed lunch in the gallery café and spent the afternoon exploring the current photography exhibition on show there.

The exhibition titled: Women and Children; and Loitering Men, documents the work of Salford born artist Shirley Baker. Baker used the medium of photography to document urban, post war communities living and working in Manchester between the 1960’s and the 1980’s.

It was great to see previously unseen photographs of historic Manchester architecture and a fitting exhibition to reflect on our city’s strength, creativity and resilience.

(The Shirley Baker Exhibition is open until Monday 28 August 2017. Details can be found here. )

Each year in March, thousands of property professionals from all sectors of commercial, residential, and retail real estate, gather at the Palais des Festivals on the French Rivera for the four-day conference.

Our Studio have helped our clients get ready for the event by producing cgi and animations to help showcase some of Manchester’s exciting future developments such as Angel Meadows, Altair, North Central and St John’s Masterplan.

Here are just some of the projects that have attracted plenty attention over the course of the week on social media and in the press:
