Re-Imagining Shrewsbury's Forgotten Urban Pockets

This thesis project focused on people and specifically their points of interaction and movement within both the urban fabric and landscape of Castlefield in Shrewsbury. By concentrating on sites that were neglected through urban decay, a masterplan of revelations was developed from ‘The Town to The Country’. The ideology behind the masterplan focused on unravelling hidden historical urban pockets and then developing a new sub-urban walk and built environment that complimented the historical past.

‘The even progress of travel is illuminated by a series of sudden contrasts and so an impact is made on the eye, bringing the plan to life’. 

Gordon Cullen, 1971
