‘‘A departure is necessary so that another arrival and another beginning may be possible, wherein another order of identity and freedom and of association and relations may be realised. Might a true meeting with the other and the World, finally lead is outside ourselves and towards somewhere else?’’ M. Pimlott After looking at Mark Pimlott’s essay ''Only Within'' on the mall typology I investigated some of the principles behind the latter in order to come up with a methodology to analyse a certain area of Bradford along a chosen path between [Thornton Road], [City centre] and [Little Germany]. After an initial analysis of Bradford both on a macro and micro scale I looked at developing a strategy to increase the overall value of the area as means of overcoming the current insecure financial climate. Value was analysed on a 100m x 100m grid and subdivided in 4 separate components: heritage, proximity, land prices and perceived value, which were then overlaid on a comparative map to show points of polarities. This presented an opportunity to compare these and develop a design proposal for master planning an area. In my personal work I would be interested in locating points of polarities where for instance high price land values meet low infrastructure index values.
