  • 34. A ‘RETURN’ TO THE MASTERPLAN ‘VISION’ . . . continuing the thread
    • One compelling theme throughout our initial conversations was that
    • Bradford is ‘hidden’ . This bred a desire to uncover the Bradford
    • ‘ experience’, starting with its position in the region, at the centerfold of
    • a ‘Coast to Coast’ map stretching from Liverpool to Hull. We then looked
    • at its wonderful topography and buried water courses ;
    • At the network of centres – high streets, village greens, parades
    • and corner shops. We examined its special features – listed buildings ,
    • historic landmarks and panoramic views . Above all we discovered
    • the diversity and strengths of its people . (Forward, Alsop Architects 2003)
    • To create a city centre “where people are justifiably proud
    • of where they live, learn, work and play”
