M.Arch A Social Composite

Amidst the backdrop of social tension that enveloped Bristol during the
2020-2021 Black Lives Matter protests, this scheme proposed the integration of a kayak factory into Bristol’s canal system. The design language thoughtfully juxtaposed social tension with the mechanical tension present within the canal mechanisms, seeking to create a space that encourages unity by blending public and private spaces within a district of Bristol that has been overlooked the past decades.
