The studio proposes the creation of a sustainable urban neighbourhood in Sheffield, exploring alternative political, economic and land ownership models better able to address the urgent global challenges of climate change and social inequality.

The studio’s focus has been on the Wicker, an area just to the north-east of Sheffield city centre, which serves as a gateway to the industrial east of Sheffield. Students worked collectively to develop a shared strategy, reimagining the Wicker as an environmentally sustainable and socially dynamic urban neighbourhood.

Individual projects seek to maximise the use of existing buildings and infrastructure, working with and enhancing the area’s historic character and rich cultural heritage. Taken together the proposals create an architecture which enriches people’s lives, is socially inclusive and is protective of the environment.
