Middlesbrough’s £500m Tees Valley Regeneration scheme has unveiled its masterplan by Alsop Architects, with additional graphics by Smoothe. The project aims to rejuvenate an area of redundant waterfront adjacent to Middlesbrough Football Club’s Riverside Stadium. The Alsop vision will see apartment blocks ‘like Prada skirts’, a multi-storey hotel ‘in the shape of a champagne bottle’ and a ‘space invader-inspired’ Museum of Digital Media. Work is due to begin on site this week.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
