The motorway represents speed as a political tool. It is about political progress, the chief planner Wilfred Burns said it would be part of “The Characterful City of Tomorrow”. It belongs to the world of HS2 and Concorde, where political figures use speed as a indication of their success.

The Bridging Pieces are inhabited with architecture taken from the old city. These are imagined as an architecture which relates to the different speeds of the motorway and the pedestrian city.

New architecture imagined as the old city smashed by the new infrastructure

Bridging Pieces - In this drawing the bodged pieces which reconnected the old and new city are presented as the utopian masterpieces.

The building is conceived as a steel extension of the iron frame supporting the internals of the old mill. The industrial process is then strung between the new and the old to animate the architecture.
