经过Gustafson Porter+Bowman重新设计的诺丁汉老市集广场取代了1920年代的计划。这个面积约1公顷的广场是这个城市的守护空间,一个安全的避风港,一个给人们重新注入能量的地方,人们在这里等待和朋友见面,一个使人们从日常生活中抽离出来的壮观体验,并且组织良好的市民和文化活动。一条水渠将游客引导到位于广场西北面的水景平台。在这里人们可以坐在座椅或者台阶上或者水景中和斑驳的树影下休息,同时观看在广场上举行的各种节庆活动。新建的对角线穿越广场的缓坡让不同的人可以到达专业市场和广场中心的活动场地同时也确保行人可以很容易的到达市中心的所有地方。

The Nottingham Old Market Square, redesigned by Gustafson Porter+Bowman, replaced the 1920s plan. This square of about 1 hectare is the guarded space of the city, a safe haven, a place to reinvigorate people, where people wait to meet friends, a spectacular experience that draws people out of their daily lives. And well organized citizens and cultural events. A canal directs visitors to the waterscape platform located northwest of the square. Here people can sit on seats or steps or in the water and under the mottled trees, while watching the various festivals held in the square. The new diagonal crossing the gentle slope of the square allows different people to reach the professional market and the event center in the center of the square, while also ensuring that pedestrians can easily reach all parts of the city centre.

诺丁汉的旧公共广场是英国最古老的公共广场之一,拥有800年的历史。面积为11,500平方米,是伦敦特拉法加广场之后的第二大广场。它由Gustafson Porter + Bowman在 2005-2007年间由建筑师T.C.Howitt重建,包括相邻的市政厅大楼的设计。广场和建筑都在1929年完工,广场于1994年上市。

2004年,市发展部组织了一次国际设计竞赛。简介是:为所有人提供畅通无阻的通道,使用高品质的材料,提供新的水景,引入柔和的景观,整合街道设施,创造灵活的表演空间,让人们流连忘返,鼓励24小时使用,让周边活动溢出到空间,以及通过设计吸引行人。它还必须营造一种地方感,并强化诺丁汉的独特品质和特色。

Old Market Square in Nottingham is one of the oldest public squares in the UK with an 800 year history as a market place. At 11,500m2, it is the second largest in Britain after London’s Trafalgar Square. Its regeneration by Gustafson Porter + Bowman 2005-2007 involved the replacement of a design by T.C.Howitt, architect of the square and the adjacent Council House building. Both the square and building were completed in 1929, and the square was listed in 1994.

In 2004, the City’s Development Department organised an international design competition. The brief was to:provide unhindered access for all, use high quality materials, provide new water features, introduce soft landscaping, integrate street furniture, create flexible performance space, allow people to linger, encourage 24 hour use, enable perimeter activity to spill out into the space, and attract pedestrians by virtue of its design. It also had to create a sense of place and reinforce the distinctive qualities and character of Nottingham.

新设计融合了原始中世纪广场的有机地形,并通过轮椅使用者和排水系统的逐步变化来适应现有的瀑布。主要材料是花岗岩以反映空间的重要性,并提供较长的设计寿命。许多英国公共广场以道路交通,标牌和街道设施为主;然而,与城市规划师的合作导致出现了一个凌乱的现代设计。

这些材料经过精心设计和选择,符合其背景,并且经久耐用,经得起时间的考验。中央市场广场由来自葡萄牙的大型浅色防滑花岗岩表面组成,与议会大厦的波特兰石头相得益彰。车辆可以进行举办活动,建立市场和创造各种表演所需的背景。新的露台提供比以前更多的座位,由灰色,黑色,白色和米色花岗岩块组成。这些颜色反映了周围建筑物外墙使用的石材范围,并描绘了水平变化。它们逐渐变细的形状形成了一排排的长凳,同时又是种植池。

The new design incorporates the organic topography of the original medieval square, and accommodates existing falls by gradual level changes for wheelchair users and drainage. The predominant material is granite, to reflect the importance of the space and provide a long design life. Many UK public squares are dominated by road traffic, signage and street furniture; however collaboration with city planners has resulted in a clutter free, contemporary design.

The materials have been designed and selected to be sympathetic to their context and robust enough to stand the test of time. The central market square is composed of a large light coloured surface of slip resistant granite from Portugal that compliments the Portland stone of the Council House. It is accessible to vehicles for staging events, setting up markets and creating the backdrops required for a variety of performances. New terraces providing significantly more seating than before and are formed of grey, black, white and beige granite blocks. These colours reflect the range of stone used in the surrounding building facades and also delineate level changes. Their tapering forms create rows of benches, whilst others form planters.
