Elicit Yield Anew aims to pre-empt the pervasive systemic impacts of industrial contraction and collapse. It uses the imagining, shaping and operating of public space as a vehicle to democratise and decentralise processes of change.
The Racalibrating Recoupling Prospectus offers 14 propositions for disused industrial infrastructure and mining landscapes actionable by various members of the effected community, at various thresholds of financial, political, and physical investment.
Key themes which guide the project are:
The engagement of individuals in the shaping and stewardship of space and the opportunities that it provides for building systemic resilience and enriching lives
The strategic intervention in existing social, ecological, economic and political systems to bring about broader coordinated improvements to the urban and post-industrial landscape.
The design of space which embraces indeterminacy and facilitates a reflexive spatial evolution. Limited programmatic prescription and the provision of tools and infrastructure which enable progressive spatial iteration in the public realm are the key drivers.
the power for spaces to affect immaterial systems which govern our lives such as access to knowledge and opportunities, or the transparency of the socio-industrial operational relationships of civilisation.
