Complexity, Planning & Urbanism

New MArch Atelier at the Manchester School of Architecture: Developing new theoretical approaches & computational tools using a complexity science framework (systems, self-organisation, emergence, intelligence, structural change, adaptation) for the design, management, governance and understanding of future cities related to climate change, citizen participation, development strategies, resilient interventions, policy making, urban morphology and capacity management.

Alternative Transport Choice Hubs for Resilient Transport Networks

The aim of this project is to create a multi-choice transport in Manchester by joining together the currently separated transport networks (bus, train and tram). By doing this the transport system will be, by C.S. Hollings definition, more mechanically resilient and thus resistant to sudden shocks or malfunctions in the system. My aim on the project is to create a transport interchange where people are able to change between the different methods of transport.

I have chosen a site in Belle Vue where I will be designing a multi-level transport interchange. The experiment that I will be undertaking is how circulation and structure will be configured in this interchange to optimize the flows between the transport types. These configurations will be defined by rules that I have extracted from studying other transport interchanges.
