One of our Part II Architectural Assistants entered a street life design competition with 2 Graduate Landscape Architects Maisie Irving and Eddie Pugh over at layer.studio and a former colleague at layer studio James Hartwell under the theme “Lost City”.
The concept for the design was heavily inspired by the idea of getting lost in the city, reaching out and exploring hidden environments. “To be Lost is to wander, to slow down, to alter expectation and to find new outcomes”.
“We set out to find a space that was lost and through the design establish a connection with the people, the context and nature within the Castlefield area. The location- a carpark- presented a great deal of opportunity as it was alongside a canal with plenty of bars, cafés and a museum. After a lot of sketches and brain storming, the outcome of this design was a space that was truly an experience, a space that would potentially improve the environment and allow for a better use of the space.”
