Event Details

Urban identities are never straightforward; they're a complex product of competing interests and ever-changing conditions. Around south London's Old Kent Road, where 20,000 new homes are demanded by the Area Action Plan and the Bakerloo Line extension is proposed, this is particularly dramatic. 

During this two-day workshop urban design professionals will work with local residents, businesses and members of the public to develop creative responses to the area’s key contested sites. The aim is to translate the abstract policies of the Area Action Plan into images and models of what could be. We will offer some exciting alternative possibilities for the area that both relate to its current identity, and that inspires future planning.

This event is a collaboration between architecture practice what if: projects, London Metropolitan University's Cass Cities programme and Cass Architecture Studio 8, local business association Vital OKR, community group Peckham Weeklies, the Livesey Exchange workshop, Treasure House and Southwark Council. The resulting designs will be presented as part of the Cass Summer Show and published as a pamphlet. 

Running alongside the workshops will be guided walks around the Old Kent Road, exploring its history and local landmarks, and including visits to some of its eclectic local businesses and industry.
