Alsop Architects vision of the deprived Yorkshire town of Barnsley rebranded as a surreal Tuscan hill village has taken shape with the release of these possible designs.
Top picture is a market for hydroponic fruit and vegetables, which will replace part of the "horrific" town centre; middle is a residential centre in the Southgate area, which is the focus of much of the town's nightlife; bottom is the proposed "town wall". The RIBA has launched a Europe-wide competition to design a digital media centre in the Westgate area of town.
