New: the Live Projects Network


Announced last year, and now live with a growing number of projects in its database is the Live Projects Network. Managed by Jane Anderson & Colin Priest at Oxford Brookes University, host of last year’s Architecture Live Projects International Symposium, the website seeks build and strengthen relationships between institutions running live projects. Most compellingly, it allows users to filter live projects from the database according to a range of factors, such as client type, group size, funding model etc.

Importantly, given the various definitions of the live project I encountered during my research, the Live Projects Network puts forward its own clear definition:

“A live project comprises the negotiation of a brief, timescale, budget and product between a client and an educational institution.”

If you have run a live project or are looking to run one, you can find the website at http://liveprojectsnetwork.org
