Re-Thinking Liverpool’s Railway Heritage
The design workshop aims to propose a solution for re-activating Liverpool’s lost railway heritage and connect this once again with the local community with an ambition to bring back its local pride, presenting an equal, sustainable, friendly and cultural image of Liverpool.
This design workshop is a part of a research project funded by the University of Liverpool. The research evaluates the railway heritage in Liverpool and aims to propose a solution for re-activating Liverpool’s past railway heritage.
The workshop will use the materials collected through research, including archive research, focus group interviews and mapping. The five-day workshop includes research presentation, talks, site visit, designing and reviews.
The workshop is free and we encourage students from all levels from planning, architecture, design, politics, history, cultural studies and other relevant disciplines to attend.
