Staying Put

The project looks to disrupt the current model of community exodus in the face of regeneration by challenging authorship and negotiation on a spacial and financial level. Systematic self-assembly enabled by spatial grids allows for the system to grow holistically in combination with a discrete kit of parts. This bottom-up configuration emboldens the variability that can be found in a city block, due to its layering over time and authorship of several different designers, meaning the resulting outcomes are fluid and responsive to needs. The system places the residents as agent of their occupation in the city and act as a test site for all future re-developments of the London Social Housing.
