Exhibition at Crossway Church Tuesday 14th/Friday 17th/Wednesday 22nd August by Students at London Metropolitan University

Students from London Metropolitan University have spent the past year working in and around Elephant and Castle, trying to gain an understanding of the people and area and looking at the developer’s proposals for the Heygate Estate. They have produced a collection of projects which aim to critique the developer’s masterplan proposals by presenting alternative proposals based on their interaction with local residents, and with specific studies of not just the estate but the wider area.

One project has considered how you can encourage successful public space and integration of new and existing residents in relation to the developer’s proposals for tall buildings.  Another looked at how the new proposed market square links and functions with the existing Shopping Centre markets. Another met with residents at Walters Close and to inform proposals for a sheltered housing scheme for the new development. Some examples of the work are shown here: http://tinyurl.com/c2d2x39.

The projects are to be exhibited at Crossway Church on Tuesday 14th August, Friday 17th August and Wednesday 22nd August.
