This MArch Thesis Project introduces a new Museum to the city of Chester. Located within a wider masterplan to act as a key building, not only to the residents of the city, students of the university, but also for members of the public travelling between the new area and the city centre.
This proposal will provide a museum with e exhibition spaces for use by the Grosvenor Museum and the University. Exhibition spaces dedicated to telling the story of Chester as a city, and spaces for assembly and debate for students and the public to have a direct impact on the future of the city. Creating a building at the heart of Chester’s story, telling the history behind the city and the historical wall, of which it is adjacent to, and providing a space where the future story of Chester can be written and discussed.
The proposal aims to bring an area of historical stature for Chester City back to life and back into the forefront of the journey for people moving though the wider masterplan proposal and rooting the new building into the very history and story that it is trying to tell.
