About This Live Project

Working alongside Field Art, self proclaimed generalist Oliver Lowenstein and Sheffield City Council this is an exciting live project that combines research, engagement, design and potentially the building of a prototype for a eco-cycle stop as part of a feasibility for a redundant railway station building in Brightside, North Sheffield. – This is on the Sustrains Cycle Route and the project will frame and contextualise a Cycle Station and other facilities for Brightside.

Railway Paths are the owners of the site that is managed by the City Council. They are a company set up from British Rail Property - they own many of the closed railway lines often used for cycling and the Brightside Railway building. There are a number of interesting agendas for this project, which will also form a feasibility for a bigger project in the future.

Which Way Now?

Following the event at Beck School and further involvement of field art it became clearer what our role in overall project is. Field Art are taking the lead in organizing the event and we feel that our role should be geared more towards building proposals. Therefore it was discussed at a meeting that the three groups (events, proposals and awareness) approach to the project should be changed in order for us to produce work that is more useful to final outcome of the project. Therefore it was agreed that we would now form two teams, building proposals and site/research. This should allow us to create ideas about the use of the building and gain a greater knowledge on the site and community that we are designing around.
