The Bystander is a camera and photograph archive located in the heart of Manchester Northern Quarter, which houses items specifically from the Afghan camera. The scheme of the project is to introduce, educate and connect the community with the Afghan camera as it is a missing piece of history. As it is said that “pictures speak a thousand words”, the overall concept is to show off the camera itself and photographs taken by only the camera. This celebrates the importance of the revival of the Afghan camera, as well as celebrating the importance of our memory through the eyes of the lens.

Interior Architecture and Design at NTU has an incredibly long and rich history; with Interior Decoration taught at the first ever UK Art school, in the Waverley building during the 1950s.
Over the last 70 years, our programme has grown and adapted to meet the requirements of industry and social change, respond to trends, and deliver a degree which encourages students to look, think, critically appraise, and understand local and world issues amongst the principles of design.
We are a validated degree programme in which our students can join the Chartered Society of Designers, and we are members of the Interior Educators network. Our dedicated design studio in the Grade II* listed Arkwright building enables a studio culture which reflects professional practice, in a dynamic environment that challenges everyone to work collaboratively, share experiences and experiment with ideas.
