Following a design competition to find a team to transform Lancaster's canal area into a world-class destination, MLA-1 students have worked with the winning practice to research, develop, and deliver high-impact, low-input schemes that fit the aspiration for the development of the re-imagined area. In addition, a small group have worked within these strategic visions on more detailed proposals for a container village at the north end of the site. One pair have been invited to work with the developer to make this idea a reality.


Below is a montage of the student work entered into the competition.
