The Conservation Challenges of Regenerating An Urban Industrial Zone: Exploring The Design Options
MetadataShow full item record
This document is a design project study which concerns the regeneration of an urban industrial zone. In particular it focuses on the conservation challenges that arise from the new development of Shrub Place Lane, where the traces from the past meet the new design options. As this study is guided by design methods, it is accompanied by a considerable number of illustrations while each part of the research constitutes a step for the final proposal. Due to the size of the area of focus and its component structures, the following study can be characterized as an urban conservation project and includes different phases of research. The new planning methods are formed through a detailed analysis of the site, based on cartographic sources, including previous case studies for its development and examples of regenerations in Europe that succeeded to conserve the original character of deserted places. This regeneration is guided strictly by conservation principles, in order to achieve a successful assimilation of the site into the urban fabric and propose an appropriate masterplan for its future development.
