Book showcases great city design

Have your say

researchers have launched a book combining some of the most innovative design work in Sheffield with that of counterparts in China.

Academics from the Art and Design Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University teamed up with colleagues from the China Academy of Fine Art to produce the book called Designing Impact!

It explores approaches to applied design, and features a behind-the-scenes study of the Cutting Edge public art outside Sheffield’s train station, created by Sheffield Hallam metalworker Chris Knight.

Prof Paul Chamberlain, head of the ADRC, said: “The book puts the city on the global stage, showing the great design work happening here alongside major design projects in China.”
