Unit A + Projects for Wood Green + UEL End of Year Exhibition 2017


Some photos of student work from unit A of the University of East Londons' end of year exhibition showcasing alternative proposals to the ongoing regeneration process of Wood Green. Unit A collaborated with the planning department of Haringey Council this year to investigate opportunities for urban change through a series of small-scale architectural interventions across the Heartlands study area (reference to Meanwhile projects delivery).

Through careful site analysis, students developed specific briefs and building programmes with a focus around the agenda of 'openness' for eight different project sites. The 1:500 site model displays the collective response to existing conditions of urban fragmentation through testing a series of strategies that would unlock qualities of the urban fabric and reactivate the public realm as a means to achieve inclusive forms of regeneration.
