The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

AL_A : Amanda Levete Architects : AL_A win V&A competition

AL_A : Amanda Levete Architects : AL_A win V&A competition Amanda Levete Architects have won the competition to design the V&A's extension. This building will sit on the site of Leibeskind's halted Spiral, and provide the home for temporary exhibitions. Given that this is the company which designed the Birmingham Selfridges, I'm keen to watch this and see what happens...
