Scope and Content

File documents the unexecuted project, Potteries Thinkbelt, conceived for North Staffordshire, England, United Kingdom. The proposal called for a network of educational facilities for 20,000 students to be located over a 100 square mile area northwest of London. Moveable components, including fold-out lecture/demonstration units, rail-based teaching units, self-teach carrel units, faculty units, and housing units, were to be dispersed along the rail system. Existing conditions materials include regional aerial photographs with overlays of the rail system, and photographs, photo collages and panoramas of the region. Schematic sketches and drawings show the development of Price's design. Regional plans examine links between new and existing rail systems and national transportation networks and their projected use. Diagrammatic plans illustrate the relationships between recommended functions/activities attributed to specific areas. Detailed plans, sections, elevations, and axonometric drawings show housing types (sprawl, capsule, and crate), faculty and transfer areas in Madeley, Pitts Hill, and Meir. Other materials include regional land-use plans, photomontages with drawn perspectives, thumbnail sketches, life-span charts, conceptual sketches, aerial photographs and reprographic copies, some rendered and annotated. Many of the drawings were published in Price, Cedric. "PTB, Potteries Thinkbelt: A Plan for an Advanced Educational Industry in North Staffordshire." 'Architectural Design'. (October, 1966), 483-497; in Price, Cedric and Paul Barker, "The Potteries Thinkbelt", 'New Society' (June 1966) 14-17; and in Price, Cedric "Potteries Thinkbelt: Project for an Education Industry", 'Bauen & Wohnen', no. 9 (1967) 351-360. Material in this file was created between 1939 and 1987 but predominantly between 1963 and 1967.

File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, presentation drawings, publication drawings, reference drawings, photographic material, and textual records.
