Subtle Shifts

Subtle Shifts is a spatial intervention and series of events, exploring how subtle changes made to space, daily routine and approaches to community engagement can lead to wider long term shifts in the identity of a place.

Victory Park is located within East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village in Stratford. It is a new neighbourhood, and a new community. During the London Festival of Architecture the park will provide a backdrop for Subtle Shifts - a new project by Pidgin Perfect in collaboration with Tenement and commissioned by Build to Rent pioneer and neighbourhood curator, Get Living, to mark its 5th anniversary in 2018.

Working at a domestic scale, the intervention combines a subtle aesthetic with high quality craftsmanship. By integrating into the daily routine of East Village throughout the month of June, Subtle Shifts will encourage residents, businesses, groups and visitors to make it their own, finding their own uses for an undefined space. Subtle Shifts is designed to be more than decorative, and is centred on embedding activity that facilitates future and unexpected uses for Victory Park. Creating actions and reactions to place - informing the developing identity of the neighbourhood.
