Planning Project - Group Design In this project a group of five was tasked in transforming Upper Don Valley into a sporting destination. We focused on establishing extreme sports in the Neepsend Industrial and Parkwood Springs area due to is natural features, i.e harsh topography perfect for mountain bikes and the urban landscape used for skate and BMX.

Design Work - Construction level 2 The challenge of this ‘live’ project was to design a section of the city campus and public realm to meet both the needs and aspirations of the University and its community, and at the same time to contribute significantly to the city’s local populations including residents. As a result the concept for the whole site was to use the linear form as an metaphor for the fluidity of time. Creating spaces relating to different periods of life sectioned by trees. The site detailed oposite was a hub for social activities. A place for both a short and prolonged stay. The important feature of this site is that it is an sunken plaza with disable access.

Planning Strategy

The idea was to create a space with a movement all of its own. A strong sense of direction and linearity (though malformed) is a very power force in the human psyche. In order to create a sense aof place, a notion of intention and distruption was needed. This was implimented through the placement of trees in a repeated form. The planting used site 1 is much more muted with the use of a repeated stripe of green in a sea of mottled dull colours.

Whereas site 2 is supposed to reinforce this idea, using height and predominantly Whe grasses with narrow leaves.

Design Work - Ecological The key objectives of this project were; ‘-To develop the details of the strategic plan, ensuring the implementing of the multi-functional green infrastructure for the site is appropriate on a smaller scale. -To further enable a clear concise understanding of the potential use of the site. -List the key plant species of the detailed habitat sites and provide a profile for them. -Additionally, to explain the potential ecology value of the site.’

From the analysis of the site there was a strong connection to the River Don, as a result this concept will mimic in parts the linearity of the transport routes will be used to form the spatial characteristic Design with a visitors perspective and intent in mind Compartmental base to create different experiences Using different habitats as the corridors and rooms metaphorically like the road and the stops in a journey In contrast the circulation will mimic the freeness of a river, weaving in and out the different habitats as well as the openness and closeness of a singular space.

Management Project The management agenda was aimed at boosting the quality of connectivity for the populace, as location was one of the deterring factors of this park, in providing a reason to visit NHP as a place of interest. By increasing the parks usage with lures that fit the trending theme of ‘Local Health Improvement’, while still retaining a feel for heritage. As well as bringing a bolder city-wide awareness of character.

The vision for Norfolk Heritage Park (NHP) was to bring back a better defined sense of identity and purpose; the management plan looked to recapture its historical depiction, whilst keeping a fresh nuance to the site, in order of attracting the contemporary audience of present-day. NHP aim to be a well-used by a wide range of users groups, and recognised better by Sheffield residents as a city asset.

Achieved through three main targets; – Enhancing the attraction value of NHP (both permanently and temporarily), Appendix Layout B: Proposed o Establish Management NHP as a miniature deer park. – Expand awareness for NHP. – Improve links between NHP and transport modes.
