Ground For Change - Changed Ground

Abstract

Identity is the holy grail of town planners, and is generally thought to be the special reserve of ‘grown’ structures. The successful ‘planned community’ is like a fable passed down through generations of academics to students who document with glee every time their shop-keeper speaks a word to them . The ‘Estate’ defies this as beyond our very skin there is no more definitive a sense of identity, no less eradicable a mark. Unfortunately Hillington is structurally flawed and no amount of facelifts will help.
The Imaginary Rock Foundation proposes structural change – creating micro-pockets of identity and ownership within the whole through the differentiation of spaces. At every juncture we seek to dismantle the horrific planning failure of a North South orientation with a ground floor comprising bedsits, garages, car-parking spaces, refuse collection points and shared spaces with little if any definition through programming.
