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.

Future Trajectories of East Manchester

This project uses future scenarios identified by the MCC for 2027 and the Government Office for Science for 2040-2065 to create an interactive digital tool, allowing the modelling of future scenarios in them. The diagrammatical image shown illustrates Policy H1 which states there should be approximately 40 units per hectare. I will aim to abstract the site more realistically to explore the concept of spatial distribution and density through such futuristic scenarios. Future scenarios suggested by the Government Office for Science for instance are, ‘The Fortress City’, ‘The Liveable City’, ‘The Digital City’ and ‘The Green City’.
