StreetSpace exhibition

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

StreetSpace is a research and teaching project at Queen's University Belfast, led by Dr Agustina Martire, with the collaboration of scholars from architecture, planning, history, geography, sociology and sound. StreetSpace seeks to understand the significance of superdiverse streets, by analysing their physical, historical and experiential aspects. It explores streets that risk losing their distinctive identities, while seeking to understand and value their diversity and complexity. This multidisciplinary and international project aims to provide an alternative way of planning, preserving and developing streets.

The exhibition shows the work developed in the project’s summer workshops and MArch studios of the last 2 years. The exhibition will have two sections, a Belfast and an international one. We will show three specific streets in Belfast that are in process of redevelopment: North Street, Castle Street and the south corridor made up of Bedford Street, Dublin Road and Botanic Avenue. Maps and models are used to express the complexity of these streets in the following aspects: Aspirations of urban and planning professionals; Perceptions of the public that inhabits those streets; the historic evolution of the street’s built fabric; and Sound perceptions of the street mapped and recorded.The international section has a series of projects in poster format that explore the multidimensional values of streets developed by partners of the project in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Egypt and the Netherlands.
