URBAN DEVELOPMENT New Islington Marina, Manchester
MASTERS - Academic SEM 1 - PROPOSAL A collective master plan was created by looking at the site through the lens of context, community, economics and sustainability.
FIELD WORK New Islington Borders is a proposal by the postgraduate students from the Manchester School of Architectureâ€™s MA Architecture and Urbanism (MA A+U) programme, who hail from thirteen different nationalities across the globe and are looking at the prevalent housing issues in Manchester. This proposal is the result of site visits, comprehensive site and contextual analysis of the Central Retail Park and adjacent neighbourhoods in New Islington and Ancoats, group discussions, precedents studies from a range of housing prototypes and several master plan drafts. From this initial intuitive process, a collective master plan was created by looking at the site through the lens of context, community, economics and sustainability. A massive 1:100 scale model was created to help envision and refine the entire master plan.
SITE STRATEGY The site strategy was to take in the height and density of the historic buildings in Ancoats, which created a permeable urban wall to Great Ancoats Street, with buildings falling in height from west to east and towards the landscape of Cotton Field Park in New Islington. This results in three distinct planning zones which provide an indication of future phasing. They are largely rectilinear in its organization facing Ancoats, radial facing in the centre of the site and organic at the junction with Old Mill Street. Each zone has a different type of public space associated with it - namely, the Market Square, the Park and the Boulevard.
Linear - Market Square
Organic - Promenade
Radial - Park
â€œAlthough there exists no absolute rule for size, a square must be in proportion to the buildings that surround it.â€? - Camillo Sitte 18
MASTERPLAN â€œCollage is not just a technology, but also a correct way of thinking about architecture and the city. It no longer treats the city as a static entity that is simply piled up by elements isolated from each other, but instead consists of multiple elements.â€? - Colin Rowe and Fred Koetter
New Islington Borders covers an area of roughly 10 Acres and is bordered by the Ring Road to the south, the scenic, recreational landscape of Cotton Field Park to the north, Old Mill Street to the east, and the Rochdale Canal to the west. It marks the transition from the mixed commercial and residential development in the Piccadilly Basin and the Northern Quarter to the residential developments in Ancoats and New Islington. The site is situated in prominent location in close proximity to the City Centre and has easy access to transport facilities such as the train, tram and bus. Piccadilly Station, Victoria Station and Shudehill Interchange all lie within the 1500m radius of the site, less than a 15 minute walk from the site. Other notable buildings within the vicinity include recent social infrastructure such as the New Islington Free School and the Ancoats Primary Care Centre, historic structures such as Murrayâ€™s Mill, new residential projects such as Chips, NOMA and Piccadilly Gardens.
Equal emphasis has been given to the quality of street life and the built environment, treating both aspects as important contributing factors to the overall experience within the site. After identifying the major issues and deducing that the vicinity is surrounded by inactive, monotonous spaces, often attracting a negative presence, an active pedestrian path has been used as a tool to uplift the area. The street, though car-free, remains a principal ordering device of the city, with the pedestrian playing the role of the key user. Through street furniture and retail, the street is transformed into a lively interface between the open social spaces and the built form.
â€œThe trust of a city street is formed over time from many, many little public sidewalk contacts... Most of it is ostensibly trivial, but the sum is not trivial at allâ€Śâ€? - Jane Jacobs
DELINES STREET LIFE
SUSTAINABILITY Through sensitive planning, architecture, use of materials, landscape and technology, New Islington Borders aims to achieve a holistic, sustainable community that emphasizes the careful use of resources, low carbon footprint and minimized harmful emissions.

Responsive Sustainable Development
CONTEXT The dynamics of New Islington Borders with its surrounding mixed use, commercial, historic and residential precincts is of prime importance. The masterplan has been envisaged to engage and interact with its contextual influences through an integrated master plan with active street frontages and a network of open spaces, among other strategies.
COMMUNITY New Islington Borders celebrates diversity and provides a safe, inclusive environment for people across different backgrounds. The masterplan aims to provide affordable housing and commercial spaces in close proximity to the City Centre, thereby uplifting the communities in and around the area.
Safe & Sound
COMMUNICATIVE DESIGN New Islington Borders interacts with its context and the zones created within the development itself through a network of interlinked open pockets. Both the primary public spaces such as the Market Square, Boulevard, Park and Promenade and secondary open spaces are created by the strategic placement of buildings, where each space is given a distinct character which corresponds to the needs of its context. They are each given a unique identity, characterised by its street furniture, landscape and public art installations. The primary goal is to provide both visitors and residents several attractive routes when crossing the site through this mesh of open pockets connected by easily accessible pathways.
MARKET SQUARE PARK PROMENADE Situated at the very north of the development, the Market Square captures the vitality of the bordering, historic district of Ancoats, being expressed in the community-driven stalls, with a sunken forum featuring pride of place within this inclusive addition to New Islingtonâ€™s public realm. Being an area largely free from permanent street furniture, that would otherwise clutter this prized, paved space, the Market Square therefore has the capability of accommodating a sizeable influx of people during times of social gathering, and thus becoming New Islingtonâ€™s welcoming showcase. Extending along the width of the southern portion of the site will be a promenade, of generous breadth, to facilitate gentle ambling and relaxed cycling, thus offering a slower pace of life, especially due to the bustling City Centreâ€™s close proximity in which many residents might find themselves working. The linear arrangement of slender trees draw the eye along the extended pathway, encouraging movement towards the convergence of Cotton Field Park, as the trailing wanderer happens upon this natural gem, almost aimlessly; the arrangement of buildings being essential in opening up this broad vista. Located in the centre of the development is the Park, being a multifunctional space for light recreation, exuding dynamism through the engagement of residents in playful activities, which itself appropriately draws its radiating energy from the streetscape it inhabits. In addition to the array of vegetation featured within this area, efforts have been made with reference to known landscaping techniques in which the topography is manipulated from a viewers perspective to make an otherwiseflat expanse more dramatic. To this end, the vertical components within the field of vision have been accentuated, namely through the clustering of taller vegetation on a small mound, and the positioning of a shallow, reflective pool to add visual depth.

BEYOND THE SHORE
Urban environment has direct impact on people. This promenade would be a focal point and psychic heart in the urban beach attracting people to use the space i.e experiencing the space in different ways at different points. The yacht deck on the edge expanding towards sea allows you to walk along the sea and gives a feel of relaxation. People enjoy viewing nature, especially when it is otherwise extensively deprived, as is the case in urban environments. Therefore, open space offers the value of “substituting gray infrastructure” This 1 Km path with open space allure the people, as it’s just not a open place, It’s an Integration of LAND + WATER. Within a population, whether it is in the scale of a town or a state, researchers are continuing to find evidence of increased health benefits from a green environment that provides abundant vegetation. When physical activity of an individual is coupled with green environments, the health benefits are observed to be amplified. [public health ]

promenade leading into sea TECHNICAL ASPECTS During underwater construction our main objective is to create dry and water free environment for working in such a manner that the structural stability of the structure is not compromised. Open Caissons are more suitable for the deep foundation under water where the foundation should be extended up to or below the river bed so as to obtain the proper stability. Foundations relying on driven piles often have groups of piles connected by a pile cap a large concrete block into which the heads of the piles are embedded, to distribute loads which are larger than one pile can bear.
