Group C Eco:[VR]ision

Eco:[VR]ision If you had the chance to design your own zero-carbon house, what would you do? As a response to the housing crisis as well as the ecological disaster that is the 21st century, more and more architects are turning to zero-carbon housing as a solution. But is there place for it in Greater Manchester? Working in collaboration with the Chorlton Community Led Housing Group (CCLHG) and Manchester Urban Co-Housing (MUCH), we are going to be exploring prototypical zero-carbon housing, to be situated on an existing masterplan for Ryebank Fields in Chorlton. In the end, we will be pitching these ideas to CCLHG and MUCH in a professional presentation with a virtual reality experience of the typologies and the overall masterplan.

Today at 10:00 am we had our first site visit at Rye Bank Field.

Our collaborator Chris Peacock guided us through the site and explained the current situation regarding the existing ditch which will be reconfigured to ensure that there will be no longer a risk of flooding .

The intervention will improve the ecology of the area as well as minimising surface water run-off from the site. It is a priority to focus on the lack of biodiversity, this can be done by introducing new species of fauna and flora, which will help people who are against the development to understand the importance of bringing to life an obsolete and neglected site.
