Year 1 presented their urban strategy for Morecambe, Lancashire.
Strengthening the perpendicularity of the urban grain, they propose to break the liminal barriers between sea, sand and town, to create a series of urban events, putting the ‘place’ back into the declining seaside destination.
Year 5 presented their creative engagement with the intangible place(lessness) of Morecambe, Lancashire .
A declining and decaying northern seaside town was presented as a dark, desolate urban landscape. Hope prevails as people, interaction, connectivity and communitas offer the spirit for recovery.
The students will now apply this interpretation to develop a strategy for re-energising the town’s tourism industry and urban vitality.
