The development process raises debate surrounding ownership and aspiration. Negotiating physical and spatial changes can need reflection before acceptance can begin.

Colin Binns, former architect and art lecturer investigates the emotional and visceral effect of urban spaces through mixed media painting.

Louise Janvier, artist and lecturer in architecture sees dilemmas faced by multiple expectations as the cityscape organism evolves..
