LI Webinar: Transforming Barnsley Town Centre

Hardscape and IBI Group present a brief look at how the transformation of Barnsley Town centre went from old to new creating a vibrant, thriving, and dynamic 21st Century market town with a brand new public open space Market Square. This included a significant extension and refurbishment of the market, a new public library, refurbishment of the metropolitan centre, a cinema, shopping arcade. Hardscape will also draw upon similar examples of placemaking where historical context helped to transform public space for use in the modern environment where well-being and sustainability are high on the agenda in a post-pandemic world. 

Learning outcomes: 

  • An understanding of the relationship between historical research, vision, design and sourcing ethical and sustainable materials to reflect the brief.  
  • How designers can utilise this information and knowledge in their collaborative relationships within the placemaking environment for future projects.  
  • An overview on the collaboration and relationships between the project team throughout the journey of a major public realm regeneration scheme.
