Co-design and delivery of two youth shelters in Spafields Park, Islington.
Steve McAdam of diploma unit 5 and London Metropolitan University with a group of nine diploma students consulted on, designed and constructed the two youth shelters in a small park in London’s Clerkenwell district with local young people and youth workers. Titled ‘Zorro’ and ‘CU’ the designs were robust, playful and accommodating of graffiti and hard knocks.
Both temporary structures have been so successful that they have been retained as part of the re landscaped park and have been the subject of articles and publicatiosn such as Ken Warpole’s ‘No Particular Place to Go’ and ‘Architecture and Participation’ published in 2005
