StreetSpace workshop

StreetSpace is a multidisciplinary project examining superdiverse streets. Streets are complex entities that have slowly evolved through history, but they can be radically transformed by development.

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.

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

Academics, students and practitioners will work in three groups:

History - archive documents: photographs, street directories and oral histories
Aspirations - recent and current planning, projects and policies for the area
Perceptions - ethnography studies and photographs. interviews and surveys on street
If you can't make the whole workshop there are a couple of public events which might interest you:
