Muf prepares meanwhile use for Foster’s Croydon site
Muf Architects has floated a meanwhile-use concept for the site of Foster + Partners’ proposed Ruskin Square overhaul in east Croydon, London
The Clerkenwell-based company has devised a temporary use for the 4ha town centre site which received the green light for mixed-use redevelopment three months ago.
Exact details of the proposal have yet to be revealed and a spokesperson for the developers Stanhope and Schroders said a decision on whether to pursue a meanwhile use had not been made.
The project was redesigned to take account of a Studio Egret West and Hawkins\Brown-designed pedestrian bridge which is planned to span a nearby railway track and scheduled to complete in 2013.
