Devonport, Plymouth (UK) 2012
Over the period of a year students worked in collaboration with social enterprise organisations (RIO), Plymouth Council, local schools (Devonport High School for Boys), business (Redrow homes) and community groups (Friends of Devonport Park) to develop designs for the community in Devonport. Devonport is a complex, fragmented neighbourhood in Plymouth, which used to be at the heart of the dockyard, but has over the last thirty years encountered significant problems with deprivation, health and education.
The work comprised three projects;
– a series of interactive installations capturing heritage and local stories of the community
– proposals for the removal of a wall dividing the neighbourhood
– designs for the regeneration of a currently derelict market hall building
