sheffield past present future

The Live Works urban room has been showcasing design ideas for Sheffield in an exhibition of SSoA postgraduate work based in the city.

The proposals include Joanna Beal’s community energy farm in Heeley which promotes the grassroots production of energy (above), Liam Ashton’s public bathhouse in Barker’s Pool which brings the elderly to the the centre of urban life (below), a fab lab on West Street which challenges the retail focus of the city centre, and a civic secondary school which provides a 24hr creative and educational resource for both pupils and the public alike.
