The Considering permeability as a key creative driver for my design, the natural flow of people through the building is highly significant. The public is invited to enter the space through a vareity of entrances and, with scale in mind, are primarily drawn to and welcomed up the largest rammed earth mass; The Dome Gallery. This journey upwards attempts to entice users up a grand helical stair which appears to float centrally in the space - a climb of curiosity where the journey aims to be just as alluring as the arrival. At this point, people are engulfed by the sheer scale and proximity of the tactile forms and gain an impressive sense of arrival overlooking the historic buildings of Accrington. Just as the natural strata within the materiality, the public ascend the building in layers, mimicking the organic fabric.

These sketches demonstrate development towards my initial final plans and how the spaces and massing embeds permeability as a core concept to my design.

Developing adjacency diagrams to gather an understanding of the various apces and how they may relate to one another. This also gives an overarching sense of scale and proximity to the programme.

To test interventions to the site, I edited various 3D masses onto an aerial view to capture how the space may change. This was done with my key creative driver of permeability in mind.

The view out of a window of the existing strucuture on site helps gather an understanding of the site's historic surrounding context and the potential sights out of my design.

To initially break down the site, I recorded craft aspects that were tangible whislt journeying through the town. This helped me understand the stark contrasts of Accrington, in terms of its former industrial glory, compared to current austerity and a state of disrepair.
