Continuity in Architecture is delighted to announce the opening of an important exhibition of twelve projects from the Erasmus Intensive Workshop held in Venice in Autumn 2011. The show features the work of post-graduate students from the CiA Unit of Manchester School of Architecture, collaborating with students and professors from Granada and Barcelona (Spain), Venice and Catania (Italy), and Oulo (Finland). The programme is in its third year and was established to explore the adaptation of archaeological sites for modern purposes. This year extraordinary sites of ancient civilisations in south-west Sicily - in Scicli, Syracuse, Paliké and Camarina - were the inspiration for dramatic design interventions in the landscape that redefined and reinterpreted place.The exhibition will be in the RIBA Hub, Cube Gallery on Portland Street from 26 April - 18 May 2012.

This collaborative project was funded by a grant from the Lifelong Learning, Erasmus Intensive Programme and it started with a two-week international student design workshop in the early autumn of 2009 involving students from Continuity in Architecture Manchester, Venice, Barcelona and Catania. The workshop proposals were then exhibited at a conference at the IUAV in November 2009 before reaching Manchester this week. The design workshop was based in Venice and the students and their tutors (including Sally Stone and Eamonn Canniffe of CiA) lived in the city for the two week period. The results of the workshop, and a compilation of papers written by the lecturers who were directly involved in the project will be published in May 2010.
