How can I find out more about The Building Project?

The Building Project is an exhibition by Freshwest being held at the Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen. The exhibition looks at how buildings, settlements and the landscapes they inhabit can bring about emotive responses and bring about creative ways of living and thinking. The exhibition is participatory, encouraging people to get involved and create their own ‘house’ to add to the settlement which will grow during the course of the exhibition. If you would like to learn more about The Building Project before attending the symposium there is a drinks reception being held in Oriel Myrddin Gallery on Friday 15th March 2019 between 6 and 8pm. There you can meet the designers of the project, Marcus Beck and Simon Macro from Freshwest, and Niall Maxwell, director of the Rural Office for Architecture, to hear more about the concept behind the exhibition.
