About the project: Harris Flights

This blog aims to chart the planning and realisation of a contemporary architectural intervention to be delivered in Preston, Lancashire in the summer of 2013, entitled ‘Harris Flights’. Commissioned by In Certain Places, this time working with architectural practice Research Design, supported and programmed by the partnership of the Harris Museum & Art Gallery, Preston City Council and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

The Project will see the original exterior stairs of the Harris Museum (which currently reach to the first floor) temporarily extended into the Market Square in Preston, taking an audience ‘directly into the heart of the museum via the front door’, while additionally providing a performance space, for professionals and local groups.


Over 10 weeks this Blog aims to capture the voices of the different parties involved through a series of interviews, reflections and analysis. With the intention of offering a unique insight into the work of In Certain Places and contemporary public arts practice.

Exploring the opportunities available for urban regeneration through cultural intervention, Harris Flights is set to see Market Square become a cultural destination and a vibrant hub of activity.

In association with Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston City Council and UCLan School of Art, Design and Performance.
