AJ/Argent charrette: new visions for Manchester's Airport City


The AJ can reveal the proposals by the six practices invited by developer Argent to come up with innovative designs for its emerging Airport City outside Manchester

Earlier this year the AJ hand-selected an exciting mix of architects to come up with concept ideas for Plot C at Airport City - a 1.29ha site at the heart of 5plus Architects’ masterplan for the new business and leisure destination near Manchester Airport.

For more information about the brief and context for the charrette see below:

Meet Argent boss David Partrididge at the AJ/Argent Airport City charrette exhibition on Thursday morning at The Manchester Bar (8am-9.30am) in MIPIM, Cannes.

Partridge and Argent colleague Ruairidh Jackson will join the AJ’s Rory Olcayto at the event, which showcases the charrette work featured in the current issue of the magazine.

  • All practices were paid to contribute by AJ, although the prospect of working with Argent, meeting key Argent staff, and having their work showcased in AJ, as well as in a special book AJ has produced and which will be distributed at MIPIM, was more important to the practices involved. each praxtice will also feature in a breakfast briefing in the manchester bar at MIPIM on thursday. If you are in MIPIM,please come along.
