Incorporation M4 / 2009

This critical review of the design of the New M4 motorway south of Newport, Wales (GB) is done in a participatory way. It is an INVITATION to integrative thinking. Central issues discussed are the legibility of the landscape as is, leading to the conclusion that READABILITY needs VIEW. The next step involves looking into the changing culture in the motorway zone, and to attempt to forecast and examine the impact on the future landscape that the motorway will have on the landscape.

A participatory critical review: GOODBYE HIERARCHY, HELLO IDENTITY
Commissioned by SAFLE on behalf of The Welsh government and OveAarup
