This unit focusses on radical intervention, regeneration and the adaptive re-use of challenging post-industrial urban sites and infrastructure. You will work in groups from the conceptual through to the developed design stage and then individually for the detailed design stage, developing over the course of the unit a comprehensive proposal for a mixed-use complex within a post-industrial, urban environment.

In parallel to the main group activity, you will be required to carry out an individual written project in the form of a brief development journal. This journal will in turn feed into the development of the group project and return brief. Working in groups towards common goals is a major feature of the unit, and one of the significant learning outcomes. You will also be required to reflect upon your group experience in the journal.
