STRATEGIC AIMS

the project revolves around the idea of creating meantime use in vacant spaces for the benefit of the local communities and ecologies. the indeterminate value of vacant sites will be utilised to experiment and create a system of transferable interventions

the ateliers this year focuses on the theme of periphery and explores ways of bringing a new identity and functional coherence to these indeterminate landscapes, looking at their relationship to the inner city as well as to the outer ‘rural’ condition.

peripheries are ubiquitous, not just as an edge, but also as areas of lesser importance. they are found in all locations and at all scales, developing through a multitude of scenarios. as settlements grow and overlap, the edge then becomes the centre. forgotten communities are left isolated as buffers between the centre and desirable housing

GREATER MANCHESTER

MOSS SIDE

moss side has become isolated in this way. historically its been a place of affordable housing for the cities work force. waves of regeneration have been imposed on the area as industry moved away leaving a wealth of vacant sites. these all have a varying typology and in some cases a juxtaposition of multiple typologies. the existing community and spatial construction provides lots of variation, whilst individual sites present an indeterminate value and there own unique qualities.

sites cycle through use and vacancy, the amount of time they are available for intervention varies. this timespan is gauged through planned development

selected sites are then used to test intervention for there beneficial qualities. these can be modified or removed depending on success and failure

successful interventions are further incubated on site. these interventions are the ones that become seeds to influence other sites.

these will be transferred to new indeterminate sites as they develop over time. this method will follow the cycle of use and vacancy to utilise space

in response to the site analysis, the concept of incubation was further developed. the post-industrial site will become the overall incubator due to its scale and indeterminate value. interventions will be tested, modified or exchanged depending on there success. this is gauged by community response as it is intended to provide economic and social value. the other sites become secondary and successful interventions can be transferred to them to promote community led development across the area.

a tool-kit has been devised to generate responses that work across a variety of spaces. the first stage defines function through response, analysis and observation to tackle an areas primary need.

COMMUNAL

the second stage defines individual interventions to fulfil the desired function. these interventions create a systematic site function through connections with one another. the incubator site will cycle through multiple functions to determine what interventions are the most successful. impact value shows how the interventions will affect the site environmentally, though construction reflects the temporary nature. 1

interventions all have a set of values such as aesthetic and ease of construction. the incubator site develops over its 5 year lifespan, in conjunction with the secondary sites and newly developing indeterminate sites. the tool-kit of interventions will continue to expand over time

TRANSFERENCE

as the sites have an indeterminate lifespan, they will need to be vacated when further development is proposed. all interventions are intended to be transferable to adhere to this constraint, whilst also being able to utilise other indeterminate sites in the area. these examples show how interventions can be transferred & influence further community led development either directly or in-directly

ECONOMIC VALUE - jobs generated through maintenance - training provided to community - resources generated distributed locally & also sold SOCIAL VALUE - creates connection points across fragmented areas - gives ownership of space to the end user - alters external perception of an area ENVIRONMENTAL VALUE - encourages the use of vegetation for both functional & aesthetic purposes - remediate contamination and minimise soil degradation during vacancy - minimise air pollution

development

this method of designing temporary, adaptable interventions in equally temporary sites allows change to happen incrementally, embracing success and failure. the meantime use generates community engagement and functional outcomes for all involved. after a site has been redeveloped, existing community initiatives are encouraged at new sites or as newly developed independent businesses. the fragmentation of interventions to new sites becomes catalytic as new sites adopt new functions and user groups. this allows the end user to take ownership and direct the development or their own landscapes
