To create a long-term urban strategy by time changing to reconnect the district which cut by infrastructure, especially the disconnection from the historical infrastructure. We attempted to introduce nature into urban as a main physical and social connection.

This thesis looks at the reuse of historical and existing urban fabric as an ethical approach to design, preserving the historical memory and implementing sustainability strategies. By embracing slow change instead of rapid replacement, achieve the consideration planning for the community. The idea of demolition is so prevalent in Glasgow, introducing slow-changing planning as an opportunity for long-term sustainable urban planning. It has been developed through the view of a sustainable circularity strategy: a timber forest and manufactory for future warehouse refurbishment.
