Competition runner-up Prize - Stockport, Cheshire.
Urban Park, Stockport
An open competition.
A project to masterplan the regeneration of two central spaces in Stockport: Mersey Square and St. Peter’s Square. The squares are under-used and suffer from bad connection to the existing civic amenities.
The submission was shortlisted to the final four and described by the judges as “a beautiful design and well-executed and consistent idea”.
The project proposes no new buildings, but rather a series of connecting links and urban devices to create a cohesive and continuous landscape that invigorates the city scape to encourage surrounding new development and an upgrading of the existing building stock.
