Carl Turner wins Brixton pop-up comp


Carl Turner Architects has won a competition to design a 4,000m² temporary community space in Brixton, south London

The Manser Medal winning practice, in collaboration with landscape architects Edible Bus Stop, has won a competition run by Lambeth Council to design, build and run community facilities on a site adjacent to Brixton Market and Brixton Recreation Centre.

Named ‘Grow:Brixton’ the 18-month meanwhile-use project on the site of a former ice rink will contain a self-sufficient community kitchen and garden, enclosed by a wall of shipping containers. These containers will be used as rental spaces for small businesses and as studio spaces.

Plants will be grown in a series of poly-tunnels, with a large (9m x 27m) tunnel being used as a kitchen and eating area.
