Briony-Turner

Geography PhD student, Briony Turner, was part of a team whose submission to the UN-Habitat Urban Revitalization of Mass Housing international competition has been awarded 2nd place in the UK.  The submission was called The Metamorphosis of North Woolwich: resilient through nature, revitalised by design.

The design team was made up of students from King’s College London and The Bartlett, University College London.  The submission includes three plates outlining the team’s analysis and recommendations for the area and also includes a report documenting the team’s urban analysis of the Royal Docks and North Woolwich area.

UN-Habitat is promoting a new urban planning paradigm that calls for planning in advance at the scale of expected development of cities with a better integration of urban uses in an environmentally sustainable manner. The ultimate goal is to attain the social, economic, environmental and cultural sustainability of cities.  Their development-oriented competition required participants to submit evidence of analysis of the selected mass housing locality on issues related to sustainability and policy recommendations and solutions for the revitalization of mass housing within that locality.
