The upcoming Urbanistas Exhibition opens to the public on Friday 6th March, private view on Thurs 5th March 18.30-20.30.
We’ll be presenting our work from Leeds and Dewsbury as part of a wider showcase of innovative architecture, urban and landscape design projects.
Please see https://www.facebook.com/RocaLondonGallery?fref=ts for more information about the exhibition.
Over the next six months, Bauman Lyons will be participating in a research project investigating ‘What could a city co-production lab be?’ for Leeds. We will be looking at the spatial aspects of co-production, together with various themes relating to co-production, such as motives, capacities, ethics, impacts and adaptability. The project belongs to a programme of pilot projects launched by the N8 Research Partnership and the University of Sheffield, exploring the potential of knowledge ‘co-production’ between researchers and non-academics.
We kick started the project last week with an initial brainstorming workshop with partners from the Leeds universities, Leeds City Council and representatives from Leeds’ civic sector.
We are very excited to be represented at Urbanistas: Women Innovators in Architecture + Urban + Landscape Design. The exhibition showcases sustainable and liveable projects that bring together these three disciplines and highlights the ingenuity and resourcefulness needed to tackle modern city living.

Climate Change Adaptation Strategies for Commercial Buildings
Bauman Lyons have, over the last 3 years, carried out major research into climate change adaptation strategies for commercial buildings financed by Technology Strategy Board.
These projects contributed to The Business Case for Adapting Buildings to Climate Change published by Innovate UK.
The executive summary of this influential research can be found here:

A fantastic effort was put in to get the traders back in to the market place for the lead up to Christmas. Traders have moved back into a lighter and brighter market with refurbished stalls and new paving. Works continue in the meantime, ready for completion in early 2015.
We are pleased to confirm the official launch of our project in Hull. Holy Trinity Church, a Grade 1 Listed building, is to be remodelled to enhance it as a venue for a great range of community activities. The project is to be completed in time for Hull’s City of Culture 2017.
Follow the coverage at Hull Daily Mail and at Holy Trinity’s web page for more information about the designs.
Major debate at 4×4 Making Places in Sheffield asking the question of ‘Where will our grandchildren live?’
Market and Public Realm paving construction is well underway at Shambles Market in beautiful York. Construction of the Kiosks has also commenced and we are looking forward to seeing the first tranche of stalls reinstated following offsite refurbishment and improvement work.
We are pleased that Guy Smith, one of the Directors, is now accredited as an RIBA Conservation Registrant. This continues to strengthen our knowledge and experience in working on listed buildings and buildings of historic interest.
After installing the requisite access gantries (safe working ahoy!) work continues to install insulation, breather paper and counter battens over the CNC cut plywood structure.
The first phase has been handed over for pupils starting back at school this term. This includes a new kitchen, dining room and reception classrooms.
We are making progress on our self-build of a garden room extension to our office. And as a picture tells a thousand words…
We are working in Withernsea – East Yorkshire – with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership to create a renewed vision and improvement plan for the seafront promenade.
We run a public consultation in Withernsea on Saturday the 14th, which has been covered by the Hull Daily Mail and the Holderness Gazette. (Image above by Peter Harbour from Hull Daily Mail).
We had a successful day on the Promenade talking to visitors and residents and we also had the opportunity to collaborate with a group of young people from Withernsea Children and Family Action group, who undertook a questionnaire survey as part of their Participatory Appraisal Course.
The new Cafe at Derby Museums and Art Gallery opened last Saturday. We were delighted to have been able to help out with some design decisions.
We hope that it is a success.
