The Schuster Annexe Project
The University of Manchester is currently adding a 27,000 sq ft extension to Schuster Annexe, its physics and astronomy building.
The Schuster Annexe, part of the University’s £1bn campus masterplan, is being built on unoccupied land on the corner of Upper Brook Street and Brunswick Street in Manchester and will connect to the Schuster Building, where the material graphene was isolated by Nobel-prize winning Professors Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov.
The project, which is part-funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England, will house collaborative learning spaces and also the ‘Ideas Mill’ which will explore different methods of teaching and learning in the department.
The Ideas Mill will be a base for outreach activities and create a venue for connection and collaboration.
The architect is Hawkins\Brown.
How we are helping at Schuster Annexe
TimelapseManchester have mounted a time-lapse camera on the existing building to get a great view of the construction site. The long duration time-lapse camera takes a photo every three minutes. The built in 3G connection allows the client to view the latest image from any web enabled device. Once the project is complete, TimelapseManchester will compile all of the images into a film. This is then edited to show the construction of Schuster Annexe.
