We are excited to be working with the Workhouse project, founded by Eva Schlunke, Dominic Sagar and John Large. The core aim of this project is to establish a social media presence which serves as a community forum for exploring and understanding issues around housing and building community resilience.This should include looking at different types of need, aspirations, barriers, mistakes, agendas etc while keeping the focus on finding out what works (locally, nationally and internationally), and how successes can be replicated and implemented in Hulme and Moss Side.

Inspired by urban transit maps, we created a diagram to schematically present the existing charitable food infrastructure in Hulme and Moss Side. This furthered our understanding of the existing networks and interactions in the locality. Additionally, we spent the the day developing our understanding of the site as well as beginning to test design ideas and strategies for the site to be developed after our site visit tomorrow.

To create a physical barrier between our site and the adjacent road, the team began developing ideas for a wall constructed from reused tyres. We intend to fill the tyres with soil that can support the growth of plants creating a bucolic meadow bank next to the cycle path. The side of the tyre wall facing the road can also utilised as a location for sponsor logos to provide a source of funding for the development.

In order to provide our external partner with the exciting imagery with which to sell the project to the community, we created some final perspective renders in an effort to bring the scheme to life. This perspective reveals the view of the site from Princess Parkway, taking in the areas for branding and sponsorship as part of our project's economic strategy.

We produced some rendered perspectives of the cycle path, tyre wall and market space area to look at how the area can be utilised throughout the day.
