Text by Matthew Turner: The project aims to create a dynamic area to counter the town centre, partly through a action sports theme. A stage area is created at the large silo's base, and the tower becomes the backdrop to the cultural activities that will draw people to the area like a magnet. Audience participation is intended to determine what acts continue playing. The public need to climb to the top of the silo and spin a wheel to create energy to light the building for a 'yes' vote. Forming two sides of a square around the tower, buildings termed 'mixed use containers' are elevated on angled columns on a large slab. These shroud the majority of the existing buildings, which are used for parking cars in.
