Metrolink Tram Terminal and Covered Pedestrian Walkway
Organised by Chapman Taylor as an internal office competition, this project was a collaborative submission with 3 other members of staff. The brief was to design a new tram terminal and public walkway at the MediaCity development located at Salford Quays, Manchester. The concept is a response to the rich industrial heritage of the site, formerly used as shipyards alongside the Manchester Ship Canal.
The timber structure references the trade of the industrial era whilst the form of the building evokes movement and fluidity of travel. The distinctive look provides a strong identity and sense of arrival with a continuous flow from the platforms to the walkway. The organic structural form wraps around the boundaries of the site, connecting all elements into one.
