Alexander Watts

Master of Architecture

The Salford Lads Hub project revolved around tackling youth issues in the Ordsall area of Salford, culminating in the design of a specific youth centre building within a wider urban masterplan for New Barracks estate in Ordsall. As a way of encouraging young people to engage with the youth services featured in the masterplan elements of theme park design and technology were incorporated into one building. The resultant design consisted of a larger canopy for informal activities, with smaller self-contained structures for other activities. The design was heavily focussed on developing the way in which people negotiate the structure, and the order of spaces was informed by early masterplan diagrams.
