Year 2 Portfolio
Project 1 – THRESHOLD: CYCLE HUB
This project requires to design a small building in a landscape; specifically, a temporary cycle hub at the South Street Park. Due to the fact that the cycle hub should consist of a storage space for 40 bikes, a café, a kiosk, a small-scale administration office, toilets and a goods or services shop, my partner and I decided to divide the building into two parts, separated by an exciting path, on the one side the building will act like a drive through whereas on the other side the cyclist could rest and change suits.
Project 2 – PLANETARIUM THEATRE
For the second project we needed to design a small community theatre, and will be located in Ancoats in Manchester. Although there were many options of different form of theatre I had decided to design a planetarium theatre because there is no other in Manchester and it will enhance the city. This theatre will have an educational manner as the context of the movies and the exhibition space will be informative.
Project 3 – HOUSING PROJECT
For this project we needed to design 6-12 houses to accommodate both families as well as additional domestic groups, because in Burngreave a high percentage of the population is ageing, but at the same time there is an increase in young population. My scheme is about age friendly housing and encouraging the interaction between the different age groups. Therefore, I designed 6 adaptable houses with a community centre and a tree house playground.
