As it is the case of many post-industrial towns, the condition of Stoke-on-Trent in the UK is defined by its backwater location, with its own logic of urbanisation and economy, quite different to those of the metropolitan areas. In the 1960’s architect Cedric Price proposed a project called “Potteries Thinkbelt” for Stoke and its circumjacent towns. Operating in a network, the project injected education into the territory, trying to facilitate the shift from the former industrial economy of ceramic production to one of tertiary focus. The project was never realised. At the same time as Price proposed his project, the “Stoke-on-Trent Greenbelt” was installed as a planning policy: a large encircling landscape, defining a border to the Stoke-on-Trent agglomeration. The aim of our studio will be to test today’s validity of these different approaches to urban renewal – programme and landscape, or where do they meet? - and to discuss transformation at a territorial and architectural scale.
