The aim of the project is to explore how the adaptable framework of community led housing and its ownership, development and participation models can create affordable homes in our ever- changing living environment. The project aimed to redistribute population density and economic growth, by using the declining shopping centre typology as a vessel that could guide cities towards a more sustainable polycentric plan.

The shopping centre was designed at the height of consumerism; however, the project explores how this can be inverted both conceptually and architecturally in order to foster post consumerist lifestyles. This is achieved through addressing the five key needs of Anti- consumerism: Housing, Health, Transport, Education and Arts. This creates incentives for self-sustaining local production and promotes the transition from a materialistic to a convivial and participatory society.

The outcome of the project is the creation of a step-by-step manual which can be given to every local council throughout Greater Manchester, to bring new life to the shopping centre typology and satellite towns.
