Description

Text by Matthew Turner: The proposal centres on enriching the spaces between the existing buildings, in stages. Step one is to introduce a network of column plug-in points across the site at 5m intervals, with electricity and internet connections. Lightweight platforms are then built off these, and pedestrian movement  becomes animated between the buildings, and develops at multiple levels. The aim of this is to embody the character that the short term tenancy contracts that are proposed. Over time, these platforms and loggias become more permanent, as housing is introduced into the buildings.
