TIME FOR T ON PICARDY PLACE?

To join the debate about Picardy Place, writes David Jamieson of ZONE Architects, we offer the attached solution.

It's a proposal which, unlike the Council’s traffic-centric plans, is based on enhancing the sense of place and adding to the cultural quarter generated by the Playhouse,  Omni Cinema and St Mary’s Cathedral. 

The space for a potential building, no longer marooned in the middle of a roundabout, could be a worthy site for a new 1000-seat concert hall, for example.

We suggest that these benefits could outweigh the loss of road space for motorists.
