YEAR 3 PROJECT - URBAN BLACK HOLES University of Lincoln Year 3

HORTICULTURAL GREEN VEIN, LINCOLN, ENGLAND (Project in Progress) Comprehensive Design Project (Project in Progress)

For years now Lincoln, as a historical city, has been split between the modern university and the rich historical antiquity of Old Lincoln causing a rift within the city which has, ultimately torn the city in two via the High Street. This is the identification of the ‘Urban Black Hole’ within the cities frayed fabric. I have identified, through scrupulous site analysis, that a positive way to re-engage the city would be through a horticultural walk from East to West Lincoln. The aim of this walk is to enhance the existing Viking Trail through Lincoln and draw people away from the High Street and reconnect them with the cities beautiful features. The walk will consist of a number of nodes along the chosen route subconsciously leading the walkers through the city, past landmarks, and through forgotten or hidden gardens. The use of sculptures to guide the walkers through the trail will be used. These will be in the form of street art, something as subtle as greenery growing from a fracture in a paving stone, to a physical sculpture interacting with a wall or a lamp post. The possibilities are limitless for this and I aim to discover a number of different ways to represent them. The walk will end in Liquorice Park where the park will become a sculpture park to tie the walk together. The park will also be used as allotments for a food co-op. The site was previously an allotment site and I aim to revive this and incorporate the local school and community into its development and maintenance, giving them a site to be proud of.

Site Location Our city location was given to us at the start of the project. From here we decided on a process of investigation and from here came my site. Linking East to West via established and understated sites.

Paddy Field Concept My site will house allotments and, due to the sites steep incline, the concept the Vietnamese have adopted whereby the allotments are physically carved into the landscape to allow for healthier growth and irrigation, would be the perfect solution to this problem. Along with this the Allotments can be sculpted in such a way as to become part of the art, not just grow produce.

The years of neglect has left the park in an overgrown and antisocial state. The park,which was given to the community on a 999 year least by the council, was supposed to be a development to celebrate the millennium. However, less than 5 years later the site had already started to be neglected. It has become a very aggresive and unfriendly place to visit with beer cans and animal waste scattered throughout, it is obvious that nobody has respect for the site. My proposal aims to rejuvinate the site and encourage the local community to engage in the activities which will go on over the course of the projects life.

The image to the left is the beginning of the design process. These lines will determine the positioning and shape of the buildings I will use to form my development. The lines are determined by the tree canopies. By drawing lines from the outer most part of the canopies we get a grid system which will allow us to develop the buildings with respect to the existing landscape. 9 University of Lincoln

The building design is currently in the last stages of development. Once this is all completed then the design can be put in location and its impact can be seen. With its timber cladding finish and greef roof the development will blend into its location seemlessly, especially once the materials have had chance to settle and weather.

YEAR 2 PROJECT 1- AN INVESTIGATION OF PROCESS AND PRODUCTION University of Lincoln Year 2

CERAMICS WORKSHOP, LINCOLN, ENGLAND ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

BRIEF To make is to understand. This brief required us to investigate a making process and a suitably designed building to accommodate it. The design should successfully address the building as a machine (literally and metaphorically) and also the notion of this machine as architecture. The building had to accommodate all that was required in our specific ‘making’ process and also house a ‘front of shop’. The focus of this project was to understand the timeline of production in relation to layout and the relationship of public and private space in a commercial building. We also had to demonstrate a true understanding of the requirements of the user through brief analysis Particular attention was be paid to the treatment of the external areas of my site and ‘streetscape’ using my analysis of the surrounding urban condition to influence how I designed. Lighting, materials, circulation, access, parking and planting must be resolved in the final design proposal. I also had to consider how my design aesthetic can influence my ‘streetscape’ using, for example, my choice of material pallet, proportional/rhythmic relationships and interior / exterior connections.

Design Development Development started with identifying the necessary components of a ceramics workshop, i.e process of making the clay, shaping an the furnace for baking. Once areas had been distinguished design was in full flow. Investigations into Roman dwellings began to influence the building shape, as Lincoln was previously a extremely important Roman stronghold. The initial design came from the Roman dwellings where a contemporary twist was imposed onto the building taking into account views, access and lighting. Final outcome combines modern concerns with an appreciation for the past.

The Roman trail in Lincoln leads the visitor on a ancient journey, bringing the Roman Lincoln to life. This Roman path pass near my project site, I would to change its course and invite the people to visit the ceramic maker workshop and see his works that will be expose. This particular area it is not to much explored in terms of commerce, and it is a place used for many people of different ages. Redesign

LACE ARCHIVE, NOTTINGHAM, ENGLAND INTEGRATED DESIGN PROJECT

Located within the Nottingham Lace Market our site should house an archive for the lace along with a number of other functions such as a workshop for lace manufacture as well as a social space, for example a wine bar. This development housed an archive, a workshop, wine bar/cafe with seating, small theatre and a small gift shop.

The Nottingham lace industry is the basis for Nottinghams past successes. It was world renound for its lace and, as a result, the products were demanded throughout the world. The industry has Regal links as the Nottingham producers were the manufactures of Royal wedding dresses and a number of other items used by the royal family.

Keeper’s Close, Cheshire A listed building which was originally a hunting lodge. This development had many interesting factors which needed to be considered through the development process, the main being the buildings fragility and restrictions. My involvement in the building was developing the elevations for the extension, working with internal detailing and designing and drawing the layouts for all of the houses bathrooms and bedroom layouts. 26 University of Lincoln

Isthmus Cottages Isthmus Cottages was a redevelopment of an existing hostel. The bedrooms were completely redesigned and the internal courtyard was resurfaced. The boat underneath the balcony was redesigned allowing for more effective usage. The integration of solar panels and a green roof has enhanced the buildings sustainability stance.

Badgergate Farm House I designed and modelled a number of outbuilding designs to house a garage, log store, garden shed and a tennis equipment store. This was the chosen design and it is currently in further design development stages with the clients. This was a very fulfilling development as I was given total responsibility for the design and development to the time I left. With input from the partners I was able to develop a comprehensive design which enabled the client to utilise the difficult space whilst enhancing the current property.

Riverview Hostel Riverview was a project that went out to tender for a plot of land in Lancaster. The proposal I worked on was for a number of residential dwellings, some commercial workshops and for a communal laundry. The images shown here were all produced by myself and were solely used in the tender package. The initial site layout was already in place, designed by the client, but the modelling and photoshop work was done over a weeks work with the firm.

Holden Clough This building, which is a ‘Heritage Asset’ is based in the beautiful Ribble Valley. The original house had large amounts of land which have subsequently been sold off and given to other parties. To enclose the house from the land the original owners imported one species of each tree in the UK, making this property the proud owner of the largest collection of different species of trees in Europe.

70 Coniston Road, Lancaster This property was a council house in an estate outside Lancaster. The owners were granted funds to design and build a small disabled toilet downstairs for their disabled son. I was given this project as a relatively straight forward beginner project for me. I developed a design, taking into account the surroundings, and this was recently built and is now completed. With a little guidance from an architect at the firm I was able to successfully create these drawings for the family and was successful in the planning and construction stages.

Gledstone Hall, Sir Edwin Lutyens, nr. Skipton. It’s elegant design is somewhat misleading. With its facade suggesting a non-existant piano nobile, and its ‘unlovable’ exterior, it may be seen as a cold dwelling, however its current refurbishments give the house an entirely new feeling.

This hall, known as the ‘Last English Palace’, was designed by one of the most influential architects of the 20th century. Currently owned by an artist, huge amount of money have gone into its restoration. This building was to be the birth of my love for classical architecture.
