Following our field trip to Gdańsk, Poland, in October 2010, second year M.Arch students produced a diverse range of urban strategies for the city.  Using the Trasa Słowackiego development as a stimulus for the proposals and responding to the unique context of the city, the schemes range from the highly subversive and revolutionary to the slightly more conventional but still interesting, including topics ranging from infrastructure hacking, collaborative action and re-industrialisation, through to reclamation of the public realm.

All the strategies can be found below.  Click on the images for larger versions.
