The development of Earlestown Station high lights the evolving effects of detachment and the disjointed links that occur between settlement areas and land uses.
The essence of the Earlestown Station design is to utilise the ‘gap’ contextually. A new high-level network of routes reconnects the existing community beyond the railway as well as connecting the existing heritage structures and station platforms. The route has purpose, providing links to the required destination but also encouraging engagement and interaction. Integration pods create opportunities to overcome social feelings of remoteness, detachment and disconnect though activities that encourage . . .
. . . purposefulness
. . . belonging
. . . contentedness
This design was created for the 2021 Liverpool Architecture Festival Design Charrette.
