'a triumphant resuscitation of forgotten space'
Lynch Architects has been commissioned to develop a triangular urban public site near a supermarket in Balham, south London.
The plans involve paving the area with light-grey concrete paving and constructing several triangulated, open canopies. These are black-painted steel structures, which are intended to have an association with standard London terrace railings and which act both as a background for public performances and a framework for climbing plants. The project is due to open in July 2005.
