Forgotten Spaces is an ideas competition run by RIBA London in collaboration with Design for London. Its brief was to propose innovative ways of taking advantage of under utilized sites within the city.

A retake on the traditional London square by transposing such facilities onto the River Thames. The proposals include the creation of mixed-use public and private space to help address borough deficiencies.
A project run by/ for the teenagers to express and share local life to the teenagers from neighbouring boroughs. The aim is to break the boundaries of the ‘postcode war’; through the movies edited and projected on site, through the transparent front wall.
A proposal to reconnect the communities.
The proposal acts as a playful reminder to the site’s rich history; the urban landscape translates these histories into an experiential space through its functionality and materiality. Visitors to the park can play, shop, bathe and grow their own vegetables.
Transformation of the left over space to become a vibrant point of community and cultural engagement; manifested in a linear series of open spaces, accommodating a performance space associated with the Jerwood Space across the street.

Not just a sculpture inspired by the Möbius’ strip; a live object that transforms a forgotten space into a landmark place, allowing access from a conflictive point in the Queen’s Walk to one of the beaches along the Thames.
A proposal for a floating cafe.
An urban park and kiosk on the Old Street roundabout.
The building is in essence a series of undulating bridges, linking the new Stratford city development, the Olympic pedestrian spine, and the Olympic Aquatics centre. These links meet in the middle to become part of a fluid building that houses an art gallery.
Celebrating the perpetual motion of natural cycles, the O-Zone is a water treating, food producing, energy generating outdoor gym where people can live, work and play. Creating locally distinctive community hubs, the O-Zone concept can be applied to create a national network.

This proposal is exactly at it sounds, a point from ground level at which you are able to view Londons skyline.

This proposal is to create a tranquil haven away from the hurly burly of the shopping street. At the heart of Peckham Calabash is the relationship between shopping and culture.
