Studio Egret West, the designers behind some of the UK’s most transformative urban frameworks, are hosting an exhibition about the future of London living with industry. The new London Plan has recently opened the debate about how industry should be integrated with the city; this is an opportunity to create a new identity for very large, previously hidden areas of London dominated by low density, monocultural industrial use. Our exhibition looks into the possibilities for this identity, focusing on some of the Studio’s recent works – from speculative through to complete - which explore unusual hybrids and challenge the preconceived ideas of how industry and communities can relate.
The exhibition is a collaboration between Studio Egret West and We Made That, an energetic architecture and urbanism practice with a strong public conscience whose recent work has explored industry in London through detailed urban studies, films and pioneering industrial intensification proposals.
On the evening of Thursday 14th June, we will steer a discussion with leading industry figures on the topic of ‘Industrious Living’. Please join us for food and drink at Studio Egret West’s Clerkenwell studio as we delve into this important conversation exploring the future of urban living and industry in London.
