The project, which benefits from its accessible location in Whitechapel will include a bar, café, and two restaurants serving sustainable cuisine.

Manufacturing Site of First London Routemaster Transformed into Arts Hub

            <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/os/os57kduejalm4pn9.jpg" width="583" height="415" border="0" title="" alt="" />The manufacturing site of the first London bus in E17 has been converted to celebrate London&rsquo;s maker culture in <em>SIDESHOW</em>, an installation with interactive, family friendly elements opening mid-August. The project was undertaken by <em>U+I</em> and <em>Blackhorse Workshop</em>, the latter a &lsquo;pioneer in the maker-space movement&rsquo; which started supporting the regeneration of the Blackhorse Road Area in 2014.
The installation of a giant marble run is central to the exhibition, and was created by Blackhorse Workshop alongside young architectural practice Ehk! using components of the original London Routemaster buses which were historically developed and manufactured in the space. This fascinating marble run incorporates disused bus parts as well as over 200 steel ball bearings, with the piece celebrating the history of the 3-acre industrial site, which is earmarked by U+I for development next year. Their plans are to work on a new mixed-use development, providing 337 new homes Continue reading "Manufacturing Site of First London Routemaster Transformed into Arts Hub"

The young practice, based in London&rsquo;s creative Clerkenwell, was formed just two years ago, by directors Oliver Cooke and Francis Fawcett, after working on the Tate&rsquo;s Switch House at Stirling-prize winning practice Herzog &amp; de Meuron.
This project, a spectacular kiosk and viewing gallery for arts space Bold Tendencies, will not only provide breathtaking views of London but also act as an interactive setting for installations and specially commissioned art pieces. This arts-focused structure joins (and benefits from) Peckham’s famous rooftop hangout, Frank’s Bar. Over the past decade, the Peckham multi-storey car park has been slowly transformed by Bold Tendancies, through a programme of culture. Immersive public space and unique views have drawn over a million visitors south of the river, to this unlikely home of the arts.   Francis Fawcett: “For an avant Continue reading "New Rooftop Observatory launched at Bold Tendencies"
