Atelier 2

Northern Futures: ‘The Entangled Bank’

Manchester / Liverpool Ship Canal
Neil Stevenson

Reviewing the current political, economic, environmental and social issues the Atelier 2 programme will consider both the urban context of the Manchester ship canal and the effect of the new development to existing local communities. Mapping a selection of nominated sites along the ship canal, we will be investigating what impact the new development of the waterways will have and what potential is there for new and integrated forms of urban development, landscape and amenity.

We shall be studying existing contexts, debating possible scenarios and proposing new architectural interventions. Mapping and urban analysis will provide individual briefs for new modes of working and living, production and consumption.
