ARC5002 [Living + Working in Digbeth]
For our major project we were given a site within Birmingham to create a master plan to revive the area with the introduction of a new industry and housing complex. I chose to work with introducing the now resurgent textiles industry into the area with some creative housing to make an independent community on site in the heart of the city.
The housing is connected to all other aspects of the master plan by ways of thin gantry bridges, creating an inter-connected ‘city in the sky’ that allows users to traverse to and from home and work in a new way all while being contained on the site. The block itself contains student flats as well as private apartments that aim to create a dynamic living environment.
These are my final review A1’s[x3] that exhibit my developed digital and hand presentation skills.
