Make Bethnal Green: Part 2 Student Open Ideas Competition

Students are challenged to generate design ideas which would make a positive contribution to the environment and Make Bethnal Green

The competition is open to Part 2 architectural students who are enrolled on (or have recently completed) an RIBA validated course at a UK based School of Architecture.

With a portfolio of over 54,000 dwellings, Affinity Sutton is one of the largest providers of affordable homes in the country. Designed by Victorian architects Joseph & Smithem, Affinity Sutton’s Bethnal Green Estate was one of Europe’s first charitable social housing developments, offering an escape from London’s East End slums and a decent home for its inhabitants.

What could be built on the same site today, taking into consideration the 21st Century sustainability agenda, modern building techniques and architectural approaches, together with the financial constraints of the affordable housing sector?
