THIS IS PART OF AN OA SIZE TRACED MAP OF KIRKCALDY USING A LINE DRAWING WITH PEN. IT SHOWS IN A MORE SIMPLE FORM HOW THE TOWN CENTRE HAS EVOLVED. THIS PART OF THE MAP SHOWS THE CENTRAL AREA OF THE HIGH STREET AREAS. THE DRAWING ALSO SHOWS THE ESPLANADE or PROMENADE WHICH IS AN UNDER-USED ASSET and POTENTIAL UNIQUE DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE IT MORE ACCESSIBLE.
THIS MAP HAS BEEN DRAWN TO PROVIDE AN OVERVIEW OF MY THINKING ABOUT KIRKCALDY. `I FIND THAT BY 'HELICOPTERING' ABOVE THE TOWN, IT GIVES ME A FOCUS TO MY DESIGN THINKING AND ENABLES ME TO 'SEE' HOW THE TOWN IS LAID OUT AND HOW IT COULD BE DEVELOPED.
sketch visual for an idea to erect large scale letterforms at a prominent elevated site in the town. Why? simply, that it would make use of a redundant urban space and the letters would let the public know that KIRKCALDY is important.
