15 Jennifer Clemence - The Buoyancy Shed The project sits within the context of the Hull seafaring community and is designed to provide a platform for social well-being and cohesion within a listed but disused buoy shed. Permanent exhibition & community theatre space encourage the artistic and transformative expression of individual/community maritime stories, with an urban living room and office space for related charitable agencies alongside.The shed also houses a series of portable, dual use, pods: each providing a pop-up facility to allow narratives from the seafaring community to be told across the city, or, when at the centre, accommodating an interactive theatrical archive of personal/group memory. 16 Rob Young - Crafting an equitable civic experience The project propositions a cross-programmed civic facility in the centre of Hull. It reacts to an increasingly apparent public provision and management amalgamation, driven by top down reform. The proposal includes a civic hall, city pool,contemporary library and social spaces, commercial units and accommodation. The centre aims is to explore the increasing value of encouraging civic affinity during times of austerity, and test ideas of crafting an accessible civic experience through inclusive public provisions and catering for an ageing demographic.
21 Yuan Zheng - [Re]baking School_”Fork To Field” The thinking process started with the “Fork”. Based on interviews and observations in the Fruit Market, the project developed into the creation of spaces for recreation and communication using local resources. Using food as a social networking platform it uses the education system to respond to the current intergenerational demographic in Hull city, so one can actively choose their neighbours. Though questioning our understanding of multiple generations in Hull and the local influence of the fruit market on existing culture, can we use strategies of activating building spaces to reorder daily routines and recipes of life? 22 Junbo Yu - Connection The project focuses on creating strong connections across the proposed site in Hull’s historic fruit market area. 3 key interventions across the site for an intergenerational audience are: a new pedestrian foot bridge, outdoor sports facilities and hanging garden space created within the bridge. The mixed spaces enable combined use and enjoyment connecting both an old and young audience.

17 Jingwei Zhuang - Civic Connection The design focuses on the University of Hull and its surrounding community, comprised of student accommodation, office space and residential housing. The proposal creates a stronger connection between the city and University campus through improved public realm and accessibility. 18 Qing Liu - Elderly Housing Within Student Campus The project takes reference from Hull’s historic past, building on current intergenerational relationships within the city. The design explores the constructive ways of breaking down the man-made communication barriers between two dissimilar groups: youths and seniors. The scheme is a reflection of research which aims to build a complex model that is capable of accommodating the two contrasting life styles.
19 Adam Turnell - Hull’s Urban Agricultural Quarter The project looks to reinvent the river Hull corridor as a new aquaponic urban agriculture quarter to provide local organic fruit & vegetables for the residents of Hull & an ever increasing national population. The local community will be encouraged to become involved in the scheme through the provision of training & research opportunities within the urban agricultural hub. 16 20 Bhavina Parmar - Re-imagining Rehabilitation and the Civic Foodbank A new civic centre that addresses the increasing dependence on food banks as well as temporarily housing and training exoffenders in order to reduce the rate of re-offending. The project looks to provide immediate housing and training upon release for ex-offenders from HMP Hull. Additionally, the project looks to provide immediate short-term housing and training within the catering industry for ex-offenders with an aim to equip them with the necessary skills in order to enter Hull’s thriving food production industry and reintegrate back into mainstream society.
