Description of ActivityProject Office: Motiv8
This four-day design workshop or ‘Field Trip’ option represents another example of how the University of Portsmouth School of Architecture Project Of ce provides students and staff with the opportunity to work with charitable organizations across the region. Furthermore, this event represents another step in the collaboration between the Project Of ce and a local Portsmouth youth charity called Motiv8 http://www.motiv8south.org.uk. The success of a previous one-day event coordinated by the Project Of ce in March 2013, that involved local community members and school pupils from Portsmouth, provided the theme for this intensive 4-day project. The ambition of this event was to assist with the creation of architectural and interior designs for a new Motiv8 ‘Gateway’ and, in addition, propose inspiring, creative and at the same time feasible ideas to revitalise the existing Omega Centre building currently occupied by Motiv8. This design workshop created some collateral to be used for the Reaching Communities application and could be used to bring together the community within the building but also by offering support to local families and children. This event was used to raise awareness within the community about the activities of Motiv8 and to try and gain additional funding and nancial support.
