Abstract

The MEUL is a mobile architectural artefact, conceived by the author as an abstract temporary object, designed to be located in 'empty' public spaces in Belfast city centre to capture phenomenological characteristics of the city, and to encourage greater participation between designers and member of the public in conversations about the city. A series of MUELs were developed and constructed under the guidance of the author, together with students of architecture at the University of Ulster School of Architecture and Design in 2010. In February 2010 The MEUls were installed in various areas of the city, documented and removed as part of the separate project 'What's Wrong with This Place?', organized by the author and Liam McComish.In September 2010, the author was invited to participate and incorporate the completed MEULs into the MA Art in Public 'Five Walks', a live public art installation/urban research project in Belfast city centre, organized separately by Suzanne Bosch and Dan Shipsides.
