Text by Matthew Turner: Three large buildings are placed to compose an inward facing public space, with the tall silo as the fourth side. Part of the existing building fabric is removed in order to do this. A separate performance area is made on the harbour side. The buildings construction is not clear; both frame and slab structure with infill, and stacked boxes, are shown. The tall silo has its internal cells removed and replaces with a internal metal framework in order to be flexible. It is intended that use can change, and the area will densify by more stacking over the next sixty years.
