Farset Resurfaced is a collaborative project focused on creating local economies by resurfacing the Farset River as a source of energy and re-envisioning the flax industry to meet Belfast's needs today. Drawing on sustainability principles, this project strives to close loops in production, from harvesting flax, to manufacturing products, to creating social impact; the local economy then becomes more than simply an income generator: it is a way to bridge disconnected neighborhoods, create local networks, and offer an alternative future for some of Northern Ireland’s most deprived populations.
All of the analysis and research was done collaboratively, but the images featured highlight my main contribution of designing the shared public space through the downtown portion of the site.
