Regeneration of Castle Market
by Huiyan Liu, MAAD
– My project is Sheffield Castle Market, the only market in Sheffield. For opening up the castle remains under this market, city council want to demolish all the market, including the food market built in 1923 and the castle shopping centre built in 1959. In the master plan, the site will be an archaeological park which can improve the surrounding business area. But in my idea, the part of the market should be and could be kept because it is a very important social space for people cultivating relationship and upgrading their feeling of belongings. So I design a linking space relate the market and the park as well as enrich the social life in this area.
