StreetSpace Workshop

02 November 10:00 - 18:00
Organized by: Cass Cities, London Metropolitan University
The Cass School of Architecture
Old Castle Street
London
E1 7NT

What makes a good mixed use street? How can good streets be represented beyond the usual tools?

 

StreetSpace is a multidisciplinary project examining superdiverse streets. At this workshop we will analyse physical, historical and experiential aspects of a London street and provide an alternative way of thinking about its planning, preserving and development. We will deal with problems of community, class, gender, crime, commerce and consumption, and also culture, performance and ritual. Streets are complex entities, have evolved slowly through history but can be radically transformed by development.

By the end of each workshop we will present three draft maps that illustrate the liveability, plurality and complexity of the streets observed.
