The closure of the Ravenscraig steelworks is paradigmatic of the problems facing central belt area. Described as the steel production capital of Scotland, the site used to contain a vast sea of industrial buildings. The jobs and wealth lead to growth in the surrounding towns, amplifying the void left by the steelworks closure and demolition. There is a palpable sense that the central belt is an area that has lost the impetus of its creation. The proposed New Ravenscraig Plan uses the process of montage to suggest new forms of hybrid urbanism derived from the study and synthesis of canonical city plans. The proposal is a polemical investigation of density as an alternative to urban sprawl.
