MMU's students display 'follies' at Dunham Massey

Undergraduates from MMU's Manchester School of Architecture have displayed seasonal sculptures in the grounds of the National Trust estate at Dunham Massey.

The students designed 3-D artworks in the Winter Garden which were erected this weekend and are on display until January 3, 2012.

“We were delighted to be approached by MSA, which led to 180 students visiting the Winter Garden in early October” says Dunham’s visitor experience officer Helen Appleyard.

“We worked closely with their Head of Year to come up with a brief - to design an appropriate architectural feature,such as a folly – which would compliment either the Winter Garden or the architecture of Dunham Massey house.

The sculptures are made of a variety of materials, with a large proportion wood being used.
