MASTERS

YEAR 5 University of Greenwich Regent’s Market, London

2012


Background / Regent’s Market Regent’s canal opened in 1820 and was once a hub of activity and the centre of trade. Since the move of freight from canals to the roads and rail networks, the canal has lost its focus. Over time significant canal basins have been lost and the canal has become narrow and hidden. Situated in North London, between Victoria Park and Broadway Market, lies a section of the canal which is particularly difficult to access. Much more can be done with the canalside land to make it an exceptional place to live, work and play. The aim of this project is to claim the canalside through:

1. Engaging with the canal’s industrial past

2. Redeveloping brownfield land

3. Connecting the community with the canal by making it a destination, particularly through the introduction of a canal market.

Canalside Market / Regent’s Market At present the canalside has limited access. A low wall and fence cuts the existing towpath off from its surroundings which isolates it. The proposal is to break down this wall to create more access points and widen the towpath which will allow for the canal market to take place. Buildings that line the canalside will be surrounded by a pedestrian friendly environment that provides cafes/restaurants with space to spill out into and opportunities for people to sit alongside the canal and enjoy the views.

Northiam Canal Basin / Regent’s Market

Northiam Canal Basin was infilled in 1976 without permission. It now stands as a car park for adjoining low rise flats. The proposal is to reintroduce the basin and provide luxury waterside accommodation.


Northiam Canal Basin / Regent’s Market


Northiam Canal Basin / Regent’s Market The canal basin will be lined with 600mm of puddled clay and will be reinstated with a combination of soft and hard edges. The soft edges will use 300mm diameter coir rolls and they will help to improve the biodiversity of the canal by providing space for waterside habitats to colonise. Sheet piling and steel skirting protection will be used to form the hard edges of the basin. A pedestrian friendly area will be created that uses a simplistic materials palette and allows people to interact with and use the canal.


Gas Works Park & Planting Concept /

Regent’s Market

Colourful and vibrant street planting will attract attention to the canal front, particularly by the canal market. As the visitor moves through the site, the planting will slowly take on influences from the industrial nature of the Gas Works which will become an area of man versus nature. Tree planting will follow lines and grids in parts of the Gas Works and this will slowly break down into ruderal planting where nature is allowed to take over completely. Planting located next to the canal will incorporate wetland planting. These soft canal edges will help to increase biodiversity and improve canal habitats.

Section Elevation / Regent’s Market This section elevation shows how some of the main design proposals on the site link together. It moves from the informal nature of the ruderal planting in the Gas Works, through to the more formal setting of the canalside with its terraced seating and market spaces.


MASTERS

YEAR 5 University of Greenwich Bugsby’s Reach, London

2011


Bugsby’s Reach Bugsby’s Reach is situated on the Greenwich Penninsula and the site runs between the O2 Arena and Thames Barrier. 300 years ago the land was an open floodplain and marshland. Then in the late 1800’s, early 1900’s the landscape became dominated by industrial complexes. Even though there has been a move away from industry at Bugsby’s Reach in recent years, it still takes up a large percentage of the current site. The concept is to use the past to influence the future, reclaiming the shore and reconnecting the land. River and ecological strands will intertwine and flow through Bugsby’s Reach, opening up the shore and reconnecting it to the land.

WHAT IS LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE?

What does it involve?


?

? WHAT DOES A LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT DO?


Concept / St George’s St George’s is an area of Sheffield with a multitude of derelict sites and university buildings. It is a site very close to Sheffield’s City Centre and so has a huge potential to integrate university and city life. The concept is primarily about education and integrating university departments e.g Landscape Architecture with the City of Sheffield. This in turn would provide opportunities to promote more interaction and collaboration between the departments of Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Engineering. This move would make the public and other university disciplines more aware of Landscape Architecture and what it involves.

LANDSCAPE DEPARTMENT


Landscape Department / St George’s The relocation of the Department of Landscape Architecture to St George’s will allow it to fully integrate with the City of Sheffield. It will also give the students the opportunity to learn outside. To bring the public into the site, an art gallery and cafe will be built nearby. This ensures that the area remains active throughout the year and not only in term times. It will also allow the students to learn from the public interaction with the landscape. Experimental planting beds will be located outside the department which will showcase the latest planting trends and techniques, planted by the students themselves. There will also be areas set aside for the Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Engineering students to create installations in both group and individual projects.
