Degenerate studies the decline of Plymouth reflected through the varying architectural style of Plymouth's landscape. From 1940, much of the city was destroyed in the 'Plymouth Blitz', an event which subsequently formed the city's regeneration. A 'Vision for Plymouth' was created during its rebuild, involving a contemporary reworking of the landscape, dividing it into functional sections - where each would accommodate a specific urban role - and building structures designed in a 'Brutalist' and 'Stripped Classicism' architectural style, now considered questionable within the confused architectural landscape of Plymouth. This project has resulted in a range of straightforward architectural studies to a collection of fragmentary archaeological studies representing varying degrees of decline throughout the city, visually mapping the city of Plymouth.
