Forgotten Spaces London - Peckham, Richmond and Southwark

A Jazz promenade, distorted reality and a butterfly walk: all the Forgotten Spaces London 2013 entries for Peckham, Richmond and Southwark

Peckham Jazz Promenade by Pang Zi Ting Daphne

Peckham Jazz Promenade

A musical landscape. A jazz promenade, with its design revolving around expressing contrasting qualities - in/out, public/private, above/below ground, day/night. A venue for public to enjoy jazz, and artists to busk, perform/rehearse; a common entity to bring different communities together.


Teddington Unlocked by George Woodrow

Teddington Unlocked

Teddington Unlocked proposes that an under used island and un-navigable piece of the Thames alongside Teddington Weir are reinvented as a new river


[R]estate by Gary Poon, Kenneth Luk and Victoria Timberlake


[R]Estate seeks to turn the underused green spaces in and around Elephant and Castle’s housing estates into a network of highly active and engaging spaces through the introduction of programs that benefit the existing community.


Borough Electric Workshops by Mwddrwg - James Brady & Tomos Owen


The proposal captures the surplus energy from braking trains to power social programmes in sites throughout London. Derelict buildings cut awkwardly by a trainline in Borough are reprogrammed as a training facility which manufactures street furniture for Southwark’s regeneration plan.


Cab Road SE1 by Richard Walker: WMP

Cab Road SE1

This proposal converts the forecourt of Waterloo station from forgotten and underused space to a meeting space, market, orientation and sightseeing zone and multifunctional space. As a fulcrum, the space includes a clock to act as a meeting point.


Camberwell Beauty - Doing the Butterfly Walk by Robert Birbeck Architect - Robert Birbeck and Richard Robinson

Camberwell Beauty - Doing the Butterfly Walk

The Butterfly Walk transforms a semi-hidden passageway in Camberwell, SE5, into a butterfly and pedestrian haven - a celebration of the Camberwell Beauty butterfly, first sighted locally some 250 years ago.


The Construction Playground by Jack Idle and Ali Moule

The Construction Playground

The Constructing Playground proposes to create a landscape within an industrial plot that activates the public square in front of the Peckham library and opening Burgess Park to Rye lane. The proposed landscape wraps around a new school of construction.


Exit Strategy by disPLAY - Adam Tarr

Exit Strategy

Utilising the city’s forgotten soundscape, we have created an ‘Eventspace’ to encourage pedestrian circulation to move in varying patterns, relieving congestion along Bankside south.


Guilty Pleasure Farm by Marianna Janowicz

Guilty Pleasure Farm

In Guilty Pleasure Farm sugar is treated with care and celebration as a means to create attachment to place and a central element of social life.


Interstice by Matthieu Tate


New landscape redefining Peckham Rye station.


Peckham Farmer’s Club by Josephine Neill

Peckham Farmer's Club

The Peckham Farmer’s club brings the opportunity to remodel society within the area, providing a chance for double income, education and unity amongst neighbours.


The Coal Line by Nick Woodford

The Coal Line

A retired coal line provides a forgotten green finger above Peckham. This oasis, negotiating its way through contemporary chaos and industrial past, could reconnect communities through a linear orchard.


The Smokehouse by Natasha Hayden

The Smokehouse

The project constitutes an urban pig farm, a vegetable wall, an abattoir, smokehouse, restaurant and butcher. It is designed to generate quality and sustainable vegetables and pork products, bringing a little countryside to the heart of Peckham.


Theatre Fills The City Gaps by Claire Delbet

Theatre Fills The City Gaps

The project is composed of three key activities about puppets, open to the community of Peckham: a puppet market, a puppet theatre and classes in the workshops to create puppets.


Unexpected Reality by Raúl Rodríguez Ruíz, Ero Campo and Rubens Cortés Cano

Unexpected Reality

Our proposal is to distort reality. A volume floating in the air, a closed cube with external views. The project defies the limits of architecture, urban sculpture, installation, art and engineering, merging them into a single concept.


Youth Centre by Alina Alimzhanova and Che Caines

Youth Centre

We propose Peckham Youth Centre for children of all ages to enjoy and this will enhance there well being and provide them with charitable childhood memories of Peckham.


Kennington Park Memorial by Amy Whittingham

Kennington Park Memorial

Inspired by the tragedy of Kennington Park’s air-raid shelter, which took a direct hit in 1940 killing 140 people, the proposal provides a lasting memorial which honors the dead and injects new life into a beautiful but underused London park.


Open Ended Futures by Catarina Portugal of AECOM and Jongin Park of the AA School of Architecture

Open Ended Futures

The modular composition of the disused school building facilitates multiple uses/future growth and change. Uncovering the boundary walls, this introverted city reclaims its original intent and again offers sensitive design as the productive space for the socially vulnerable and excluded.


Train station by Berenice Martin

Train station

New minimal train station.
