Description

As part of an Ulster University Master of Architecture studio coordinated by Lecturer Dr Saul M Golden, and a Queens University Master of Architecture studio coordinated by Lecturer Dr Agustina Martire this collaborative exhibition features graduate students application of spatial mapping techniques to document the physical fabric and the life of Belfast neighbourhoods undergoing contested regeneration processes of change including demolitions, new development, and future planning policy considerations as powers for development decision-making have shifted from Northern Ireland's Department fro Communities to Belfast City Council since 2015. The displayed work ––drawings, models, photography, and film–– presented a snapshot of what exists and what is rapidly disappearing along Belfast's North Street artery and surrounding areas, to promote discussions with members of the public, professionals, statutory agencies, and third sector organisations about the neighbourhood’s future and its connections with the wider city.
