Subtraction as Architecture: Collective Dwelling in Bradford
Bradford, the city of quarries. Monoliths and traces of permanence body the city, excavation leaving significant gaps within the landscape, of which some crawl into the urban fabric. The Oastler Square (formerly John Street Market) covers an old sandstone quarry, within proximity of the urban core. With increasing urbanisation and an ageing population, what would urban collective living for all look like? A fine line between permanence and flexibility is struck, providing a framework that can adapt to family needs over time.
In collaboration with Danito Oledan.
