BBC News has coverage today of the research behind the upcoming exhibition at PLACE:
Fences, parks, footbridges and even a playground can influence intense and bitter conflict between Catholics and Protestants, Dr Ralf Brand, a lecturer from the University of Manchester, has found.

But he also uncovered examples of architecture that could help heal the wounds of the Troubles.
