We had the pleasure of hosting students from the Allaborg University in Denmark last week in Townsend!
Our CEO Margaret Patterson gave a brief overview of the history of Townsend and the students helped us to ‘Re-imagine Townsend Street’. We had some discussions around rebuilding and reconnecting to the city center by enhancing the physical landscape between the city & West Belfast and the corridor between the Falls & Shankill Road. The students had the opportunity to hear from from Reverend Jack & interface local John who teamed up to discuss the reality of everyday life on a peace line and the efforts to overcome physical and physiological barriers through business! The Urban design students then travelled back to Queens University to do some consultancy for Townsend to re-imagine Townsend Street & reinvigorate the public realm!
