Sophia’s work for this proposal was based on a brief dictated by the social deprivation in Camborne. The domestic violence rates in Camborne are amongst some of the highest in the country and the highest reported crime. As a result, this project focuses on creating a safe community centre refuge for women in Camborne, including therapy spaces and other facilities. Included in the design is a mining museum. However, whilst other museums focus solely on the role of men in mining and those who worked underground, this museum focuses on the roles of women in mining. This is an often-ignored part of mining, however, with mining coming to an end in Cornwall, representing everyone involved is essential. The community aspect of the building extends out into the outdoor space of the site creating a pocket park in the centre of Camborne. This pocket park will become a centre for the people of Camborne to come together in a safe external space. The work which is depicted here are examples of the potential users of the space being in the centre and using the pocket park. The section also highlights potential museum displays.
