Modern Gazetteer


Modern Gazetteer is a collaborative offshoot from Co.LAB. This academic relationship between the School of Art and School of Architecture students is an ongoing exploration of interdisciplinary boundaries and opportunities, led by Stuart Whipps and Mike Dring. The initiative is set up as an interdisciplinary research strand working between disciplines, methodlologies and practitioners.

In the spirit of the Gazetteer, projects are responsive to site and place an emphasis on researching and revealing information in the broadest sense; through engagement of regional community partners and on sites of national & international significance.

Since its establishment in 2011, Modern Gazetteer has initiated, and led, a number of projects as part of Co.LAB.

2018 – Grade Separation, C100 Collective /
2017 – Expanded City / Scan the World, BFCAA, RIBA WM
2016 – Interpreting PACA, Birmingham Civic Society /
2014 – Significant Features, Bournville Village Trust /
2013 – Tamed With A Smile, Dudley Zoological Gardens /
2012 – St.Chads, Gun Quarter Birmingham
