URBAN EDGE OF BRIGHTON
In response to the proposed strategies of master planners and developers, I have developed special designs that locate and outline the urban connection between the city of Brighton and its seafront. Upon analysing the relation of Brighton city centre and the seafront I’ve discovered the spacial disconnect. The roads play a negative role in separating the city from the sea while contributing to pollution.
The site is meant to cater to the Brighton pedestrians. Allowing pedestrians to take precedence of the space. This will strengthen the connection between the city and the seafront. I’ve also designed a cafe lounge to highlight the urban connection of east street to the seafront. The two storeys open cafe space is spacious bringing the local people of Brighton together. The first floor acts as a spacial network guiding pedestrians by design while bringing visual attraction to the site. I’ve redesigned the urban edge of Brighton creating a cohesive relationship between the hustle and bustle city centre to the calming seafront. The radical proposal incorporates a collection of networks establishing a united route system.
