There is a great deal of debate around the question of who owns our cities. Space and buildings perceived as 'public' are often not as 'open' and accessible as they appear to be whilst 'private' space and buildings are often very 'open.' The question then arises: how can we best use architectural space as a resource for all? This exhibition, curated by Mike Devereux, David Littlefield and Fidel Meraz from the Department of Architecture and Planning at UWE,Bristol explored this theme through their own work and that of their students, producing ideas for a manifesto and imagery of the issues and potential solutions. The exhibition ran at the Architecture Centre, Bristol throughout Autumn 2015.
