drawing on the metaphor of heritage, scientific on the one hand and cultural on the other hand, dnar[t]chive proposes a regeneration hub at the heart of ancoants, the cradle of the industrial revolution in Manchester, uk. dnar[t]chive reunites dna research facilities, art studios and a social history archive under its roof, all open to the local community. once exporting cotton, today Manchester exports knowledge. the building incorporates environmental strategies and is designed to respond to the local climate, poetically evolving with time as moss starts to grow on the concrete topping roof.

project completed as bachelor thesis at the Manchester school of architecture, uk –
