Our Site!

The Flag Lane Baths project is situated in the heart of Crewe town. Our site visit consisted of an investigation into the current site conditions and scale as well as a general tour of Crewe so we could better understand the community feel of the place.

A trip to the local library to kickstart some initial research highlighted the historical impact the Crewe swimming baths once had for many living there, and made apparent to us the strong sense of camaraderie behind the project and from our collaborators.

Hello, I'm Rebecca!

I am from Cardiff and have recently completed my BArch at Loughborough University. During my placement year, I worked at HCL Architects in Paddington and I am now part of FLUX Atelier at the Manchester School of Architecture.

My architectural interests include working with community spaces and developing a project narrative from historical investigation. I enjoy sketching and diagramming to communicate proposal ideas and work mostly in Photoshop and Rhino for 3D visualisations.

My interests include playing badminton, cooking and baking. I am excited to be working on Flag Lane Baths as I feel the project demonstrates what a good use of community input can achieve in the world of design.

Action Planning for May

Across the two weeks in May, we plan to coordinate members into two key groups: a Design Team and a Research Team. Whether a particular team approach takes your fancy or you want to develop new skills alongside us, the creation of teams provides a structure to fall back against for the upcoming weeks and a focus on achieving main goals.

In Week 1 the whole group will visit Crewe to undertake some important activities regarding site visits or community engagement. We will revisit the site at the end of Week 2 for the final exhibition of our proposal to the public!
