Forgotten Spaces Sheffield 2011: Shortlist – The Coo-op by Evans Vettori Architects

  • Comment

The Coo-op is a new initiative between man and bird. Pigeons that once inhabited the site are reintroduced to give the site meaning, memory and involve Sheffield’s homeless community

The site, for so long, has only resided in the short term memory of the local communities as they passed by on their way to other locations. It is to be opened up and made accessible and can become a long term destination in the daily lives of many.

The forgotten redundant pigeon coops that sit in the centre of the site are reused and recycled by refurbishing them with local materials.

This is a joint venture between local businesses and a new community group, The Coo-op, set up to introduce the homeless and society’s other unwanted - young offenders, drug addicts - to new skills and paid work.
