A re-think of the urban model of St. George’s, the historic capital town of Grenada, unearths strategies for reversing the disintegration of its fabric, by rejuvenating its connective tissue and public spaces to support ideals of community, equity and inclusion. It represents a search for a distinctly regional trajectory in architecture rooted in place, a synthesis of the Caribbean’s cultural and geographical idiosyncrasies, its social and economic imperatives, and ubiquitous environmental concerns.
Proposals for re-purposing decaying forts, re-injecting public life into urban spaces, and realization of the Grenada House of Parliament are examined in relation to decongested transportation linkages, sustainability, commercial viability, resilience to natural disasters and changes in the global ecology.
