The site is Marple's very own swimming baths, which was opened in 1931 and is located along Stockport Road's high street. Now, an out of use building, the swimming baths served a vital community aspect, and invokes fond memories in its residents, who had gone their as children and had taken their own children swimming there years later. The aim of the project is to restore the nostalgia bought upon by the building.

The second week will focus primarily on consolidating the final chosen design and visually expressing these through 2D drawings and 3D renderings, for which we will be more than happy to help guide you and give you software tips. The workshops from the first week will also be helpful for giving you a headstart on software you may not be the most familiar with. Finally, all the outputs completed in the first and second week will be collated into the final publication.
Posted 17 Mar 2023 19:18
The first week of Action Week will focus on a variety of outputs, which will contribute to the final publication, namely site analysis research and design development of the existing building. A site visit to Marple will help inform students' understanding of the context, which will be integrated into their design. Optional workshops centered around 2D and 3D software will be provided, in order to guide students in the right direction of the desired design outputs.
Preparation and assembly for the final physical model are the key components of this week and will be achieved and completed through various stages: AutoCAD prep (for lasercutting) and assembly. The 1:200 physical model, will be at a workable scale and sufficiently flexible, so that you will have the opportunity to play with the interiors and explore the ideologies connected parasitic architecture.

Hiya I'm Max and I'm from Medway. I did my undergrad at the University of Nottingham and I'm currently working in the Infrastructure Space atelier.

As a student of Infra I have a keen interest in networks and I'm curious to explore how Stalybridge can improve its connections to its wider context.
Posted 13 Mar 2023 21:28
The project is located in sale manchester, the project idea stems from many factors, one the ability to create a wider connection to the urban district from within our small scale topology. The project will involve in creating multifaceted complex modulated systems congenially working and blending with each other. Interactions of different agents will need to be simulated in order to find the best outcome for each modulated geometry which will help to provide internal Articulation and flow.
Posted 13 Mar 2023 21:14
The project will be approached in the form of a design exercise, where participants will develop key skills including basic 3D modelling. A great focus will be put into communicating with and fulfilling real clients' needs.

Week 1 & 2 Discussions

Our fist approach to this project was to discuss certain elements in generating a safer street, from the initial meeting three themes were raised: Living an active life; Living a safer life and Living where I belong . The client’s aim is to challenge the status quo and with these three aims postcards were produced to act as a tool to form further discussion on the topic.

1. Living an active life The main question that we asked ourselves is: How are active lives gendered? The answer to this question comes in the form of six postcards. These illustrate the six most important ideas and theories derived from the literature that describe how active lives are gendered: 1) Affordability of being active 2) Infrastructure for being active 3) Fitting in: the triple burden 4) Harassment, gender-based violence and being active 5) Women’s bodies, femininity and being active 6) Boys’ sports/ Girls’ sports

2. Living a safer life The main question that we asked ourselves is: How are safer lives gendered? The answer to this question comes in the form of seven postcards. These illustrate the seven most important ideas and theories derived from the literature that describe how safer lives are gendered: 1) Activity can be healing and empowering 2) Public space design 3) Safety behaviours in public space 4) Harassment and gender-based violence in public space 5) The stories we tell: positioning women as powerless or powerful? 6) The problem with policing 7) Safety means different things to different people

3. Living where I belong The main question that we asked ourselves is: How is a sense of belonging gendered? The answer to this question comes in the form of six postcards. These illustrate the six most important ideas and theories derived from the literature that describe how safer lives are gendered: 1) Belonging is different from fitting in 2) Belonging relates to functionality 3) Representation through public art 4) A representative sector 5) Participation and co-design as belonging-in-action 6) Public space as a location of resistance

When you join us on this project, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable skills such as:

- Teamwork and communication : essential skills in any industry, and are particularly important in the design and construction field where multiple stakeholders must work together to bring a project to completion. By working on a design project, students will learn how to effectively communicate with team members, collaborate on tasks, and navigate conflicts that arise during the project.

- Design development: it is a critical stage in the design process, and involves taking initial concepts and refining them into detailed plans that can be implemented. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in this important stage of the design process, including developing design concepts, considering materials and building codes, and creating detailed drawings and plans.

- RIBA Stage Two planning: it is an important phase in the construction process in the UK. You will learn how to create accurate and detailed drawings and plans that comply with building regulations and codes. This will prepare you for future roles in the industry where you may be responsible for overseeing this important stage of the construction process.

- Software programs such as Revit and AutoCAD: by joining this project, you will have the opportunity to gain experience using these programs to create accurate drawings and models that can be used in the construction process.

- V-Ray and Photoshop rendering skills: you will learn how to create renderings of the designs, which can be used to communicate design concepts to stakeholders and clients.

Our first discussion meeting after the site visit was held in a co-working space for local independent businesspeople and entrepreneurs in Bacup's centre. The building known as the former Lancashire & Yorkshire Bank, reflects the organisation's main goal of community involvement in the place-making process. This is expressed in kids painting, furniture, and art pieces made by local artists that decorates the interior.

The St Saviour's Church project seeks to accomplish three main societal goals through the adaptive reuse of a significant historic resource:
- If a heritage asset is reused, it may serve a new role that helps the community while still maintaining its historical value.
- The goal of the project is to increase people's health, happiness, skill set, and economic potential by giving them a chance to participate in and shape the initiative.
- Long-term jobless and young people who are not in work, education, or training will be given priority in the project's efforts to create jobs. They'll be able to put their newfound skills to use in the hospitality sector thanks to the new jobs that will be created.

Valley Heritage is looking into the possibility of transforming St. Saviours Church, a Grade II-listed church near Bacup's town center, into a hotel as part of an exciting new project. The goal of the project is to increase the number of available accommodations by incorporating the surrounding landscape through the installation of permanent, custom-designed pods. This will deliver high-quality, appealing accommodation that enhances the entire offer in this environmentally sensitive area.
The pictures show the interior of the church and the outside yard intended for development.
The concept utilised to design the proposal is that of modern insertion, meaning that the accommodation pods will be integrated into the landscape to match the historical relevance of the church. The project is anticipated to have a minimal carbon footprint, with the renovation aiming for net-zero emissions.

We're so happy to introduce you to our collaborator Valley Heritage.

The non-profit organization was started in 2015 to keep Rossendale's history alive and get the word out about it. They are a community of volunteers dedicated to revitalizing their town through creative reuse of its old structures.
As the cost of restoration is expected to exceed its ultimate worth, they are counting on public funding to make the re-use and regeneration of historic sites in the valley possible. The goal is to devise a strategy for reclaiming and reusing these potentially hazardous structures and areas.
The objective of the organization is to have a lasting and positive impact on the community through the protection and improvement of local historical treasures, the provision of employment and educational opportunities, and the encouragement of civic engagement and growth. A concerted effort to include locals at every step of the process because they recognize the importance of having their input in historical preservation efforts.

The project takes place in Old Trafford. The site is chosen due to its lack of public space infrastructure. The aim of this group is to work with the local community around the area, to help understand what will help make women feel safe on the streets in Old Trafford.

Our group is to create a precedent for the client, in which the can implement in future proposals and areas around Manchester. The chosen site will be in Hullard Park. The site was chosen due to its prominence, however due to the lack of safe infrastructure for females in the community much of this space is unoccupied. Therefore, to move forward how do we create conditions for women and girls to widen their access and participation on site?

The project will focus on community-led retrofit to develop a snappy, engaging tool that communities can use to educate themselves about the challenges and benefits of retrofitting residences within the terrace typology.

This is aligned with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
3) Good Health & Well-being
11) Sustainable Cities and Communities
13) Climate Action
Posted 13 Mar 2023 20:31
We aim to develop an educational tool in game format, which can be any type of physical or digital tool in the form of a game. The goal is to create a short, snappy and fun game/tool which can be used by a wide variety of people to create conversations and inform communities about the importance of urban planning, retrofitting and climate change.

We are improving upon an existing game:

"CLIMANIA is a printable, free-to-play climate action board game that teaches you how the built environment has a major part in averting man-made environmental collapse, narrowing down specifically on two issues: Urban Planning and Retrofit.

"The co-design was led by thirteen young people (aged 14 - 18) from Balsall Heath, Birmingham, in partnership with two Birmingham City University (BCU) researchers and artists across nine workshops in two months, and in consultation with architects, town planners, and community members.

"'[Letting] young people co-create the ideas, focus, rules and name of the game' was central to this project's success, and nowhere is this more obvious than the fun that these young co-researchers had throughout its development."

Our project will create an exploratory space at the border section of Moston Brook and Lower Memorial Park, a safe place for children from the community and nearby schools to take risks to explore nature. The enhanced visual connection between the woodland and the park will attract nearby residents, especially families, to engage in the green space together to enjoy nature and observe wildlife. More complete introductions of wildlife will enhance the fun for tourists during their self-led walking, letting them be familiar with the wild animals they might come across by using rich forms.
At the same time, the overall route of the park will also be improved. Accessibility to this park will be much easier for nearby residents, and the road improvements will attract more visitors to explore the further afield of the park.

Output: According to the collaborator's proposal, the team will present the final output with a set of drawings and visualizations, supplemented by on-site construction of simple facilities such as wicker dens as the practice of the strategy. The drawings will include a detailed design strategy and master plan.
Benefit: You will be able to choose one group you are interested in in the parts of 2d drawing, 3d modelling, physical model making and hands-on construction to explore how to apply the corresponding knowledge and skills in practice. Through the cooperation of the whole group, you will be able to gain a better understanding of how these parts affect each other in the whole workflow and adjust accordingly to get the final satisfactory result.
Software: We'll cover the many benefits and tips of the software to increase your efficiency.

Chorlton is the largest district centre in Manchester with pedestrian and retail activity restricted to two intersecting busy main roads. There is a lack of public space off the main highways where people can stop, rest, play, meet each other, enjoy events - spending more time in an attractive and human-scale environment. The idea is that we would like the students to research the benefits of well designed public space - "a public square" - and envisage how this concept can be physically applied to Chorlton centre.

In action week 2 students will collate the findings from the public consultation and work collaboratively to produce a final design for the scheme. The outputs from this week will include a full set of drawing plans, 3D visualisations and a physical model.
We are very excited to see what you all come up with!

Posted 13 Mar 2023 19:49
The first week of action week will allow students to prepare for the public consultation, which is scheduled for Friday 12th May. As a group, we will design engagement tasks and activities for stakeholders in Tyldesley, encouraging discussion and feedback, which we will take forwards with us into action week 2.
As a part of the preparation work, students will construct a physical model of the site which will be used during the consultation and to showcase the final design outcome at the end of week 2.
There will also be opportunity throughout the week to have software specific tutorials with the 5th year students, to improve your skills ready for week 2!

During our site visit, we had the wonderful opportunity to take part in a clay plastering activity, organized by Rural Art Hub and Clayworks, alongside a group of children. Together, we mixed clay and water with fibers to create a strong and durable mixture, which we then applied onto blocks of straw with hawks. We all ended up covered in clay after the activity, but it was a fun and unforgettable experience! We finished our site visit, with a game of tag with the local children, (as part of our site research of course...) and explored our own creativity in the Mothershippon.
