Moss Side is an area in the South of Manchester. Historically it was a rural area, after the Industrial Revolution it rapidly increased, resulting in a densely populated area.
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries a large number of red brick terraced houses were built, and soon attracted numerous immigrants and workers.
Moss Side has benefited from several redevelopment and regeneration projects, thanks also to the different local communities.
Today the neighbourhood is affected by the numerous cars that use the residential streets as a shortcut to go from a main road to another, occupying and making unsafe the space that should be dedicated to residents, communities and kids.

Designing together!
We shared our proposals to the residents and we discussed with them about other possible solutions. It was very useful to listen to their suggestions and advice. Children and the adults from the neighbourhood were very involved. After presenting our 2 ideas we let them draw on a large map of Newlyn Street. Thanks to their suggestions we can now start to develop the final proposal of the project.
