Bay 80: Pedestrian crossing, we have a large rural bus network: 3 subway 3 ramps 1 overhead. Local tiles: Shaws. It's a significant community building.
View of access ramps
Views over the countryside, Stalactites
Rain soaked hills shrouded in mizzling mist. Bitter aromas fill my senses and for a moment I'm distracted, wondering how to describe, to articulate the intense nature of this smell
Ramp to go higher, its not, its just from ramp underneath
Down stairs we go, many flights, conversing more easily as we descend
"Rah rah", a small boy, pushed along in his buggy, transport for developing legs, whilst developing lungs play with the echoing spatial quality of the underpass.
Keep to one side or another
Buses are above us
Wondering. Planners brief, client asked for these underpasses to separate pedestrians, keep them safe from traffic, now they get a bad press
Here you get a magical sense of the building. You appear and don't know where you'll come out
Spiderweb silky tied voiles
Byron's, Shelley and Julie. I thought you went there once
Stonehenge, well, henge
You would be quite intimidated, if I said that's a lovely baby
Venue for festivals . . . Urban garden, Cafe green space - not enough green. Walking park in New York, see it positively - running track, views and making use of them
Nick: Peckham bus station, terrible car park, signage up ten flights. Pop up cafe, Franks cafe . . . creating a destination
Owen: it's gentrified by Franks cafe and the people who go there now. First visit, what is the continuing existing thread to this? What is it and who owns it? Full of emotional aesthetic and current potential. Efforts of local bodies, take this to influence to . . .
Hebden bridge, taken over the Town Hall, could run as bus station owned by the community for the community
It's not a vacuum, it's more inertia
