With some team spirit, a little effort and tins of battleship grey paint an old forgotten barge is re-appropriated as a Landing Stage and gateway marker to Fish Island.
Lavender Fields involves the provision of much needed greenspace to the Lavender Hill locality. A podium will be constructed on the existing ASDA car-park, fully landscaped and planted it will provide refuge and recreation space.
A multi-purpose trade workshop centre at the site of the Battle of Cable Street, overlooked by a public park.
The pavilion, inspired by an idea of an isolated island, enables residents and passers-by in the Hammersmith Grove area to have a new exciting gathering point allowing them to stop and take time to think about their surroundings.
The proposal takes one of two covered reservoirs at the Woodford Pumping Station on Waterworks Corner, Forest Road, Walthamstow and reinvents it as a new lido for the public.
The Liftplatz, on the leafy but ignored verge of a major road, will make life easier and safer for hitchhikers, facilitating this green, sociable and thrifty way to travel.
The London Book Club introduces a series of micro-libraries across an array of alleyways nestled throughout the city in an aim to maintain the availability of library books after the mass closures.
View into / through the passage, and elevation seen from the central exit through to the fountain.
Using one build scheme in order to accommodate the public day and evening, this proposal suggests a cost-effective and mobile solution, designed to fit multiple areas of activity.
Turning waterloo bridge from a regular crossover into a cultural attraction, which will attract millions of tourists who pass by it without any interest or identification of its historical and cultural value.
This is economics, rooted in people and place, networks and neighbourhoods. The Great Barn reopened, its past celebrated, and its land reconnected, to encourage community gardening and local food production.
Maryland Barometer is an installation providing local social/economic/environmental data to provoke debate, discussion and community engagement combined with a new hall to encourage and facilitate this in Maryland, East London.
