PARKINSON PLAZA

Providing an interactive space for students and people working in Leeds Innovation District

Striving for greater collaboration

A meeting and exhibition hub: The idea for the space was to provide an area for students and people working in the Innovation District to gather and relax in a tranquil and visually stimulating environment. A mixture of hard and soft landscaping elements which will serve a better purpose than simply making the space look good. Large areas of planting will double as SuDS development to help combat storm water runoff.

Design Concept

The concept for this design was to create a dynamic space that encourages social collaboration amongst the surrounding professional and student community. Having a flexible exhibition space in the centre will allow students work to be displayed and create a cultural and artistic environment in the heart of the university district.
