Chime is a pavilion designed by 2nd Year Architecture students at The Manchester School of Architecture, for The National Trust.
PLEASE NOTE: ALTHOUGH WE HAVE REACHED OUR KICKSTARTER TARGET OF £300, WE ARE LOOKING TO FUND THIS PROJECT AT £4000, AND THEREFORE WELCOME ALL DONATIONS BEYOND THIS £300 MARK. WE ARE VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT SO FAR!
'Chime' is a student led project at The Manchester School of Architecture that has won a competition with The National Trust park at Dunham Massey, Altrincham. We have designed a pavilion for them that will encourage people to get outside and exploring the park, whilst also engaging with the history of the bell systems from within the main house. The interactivity of this pavilion is aimed at families and children who can play with an internal bell system within the structure.
We are are currently sourcing materials and machinery in order to complete our build in the timescale we have been given, and are confident that this is possible. However, in order to do this we are currently seeking funding from those that may be interested in our work and the site. As you will see from our 'rewards' page, every donation is extremely appreciated and will be noted with the project. As much or as little donation as possible will make a difference, and as a group of students we value every single penny.

Once we have funding, the real work will begin. We will be working in the University workshops to create the main structural components, ensuring guidance is given from specific technicians. We have a great team of nearly 60 students behind us to create this pavilion and have every confidence we have ensured all risks have been eradicated or minimised at this stage.
