This book showcases design and engagement work done by The University of Sheffield in the Castlegate area of Sheffield in 2014/15. Highlighting work from Sheffield School of Architecture these projects were produced in collaboration with local community groups, The Engaged University and Sheffield City Council. The projects included range from real projects that are currently transforming the area to visionary projects that are raising aspirations and debate about the future of the area. The University of Sheffield has developed a close and long-term relationship with Castlegate, which was once SheffieldÛªs original city centre but now is struggling to find a new role in the wider city. Working with local people, community groups, businesses and local policy-makers, the University is making its socially-engaged academic and teaching resources available to initiate grassroots-led regeneration of the area. The UniversityÛªs work continues through ongoing development of projects in the School of Architecture, the annual Castlegate Festival and the interdisciplinary Castlegate Steering Group.
