Urban Radicals Street Assemblies: SPEAKERS’ PLINTHS

06 June - 30 June

6:00 -23:45

What if civic buildings in London’s Square Mile transformed from enclosed institutional structures into a horizontal system integrated into the fabric of the streets, opening up and encouraging public participation across discussions on the future of London and its people?

For the 20th anniversary of the LFA this summer, Urban Radicals has designed 4 Street Assembly platforms across the City, which re-imagine alternative parliament typologies and forms. The installations aim to make the idea of civic assembly accessible to a diverse audience, prompting Londoners to actively engage in shaping the city’s discourse.

SPEAKERS' PLINTHS: Referencing Aristotle’s school of peripatetic philosophy (walking and conversing), a series of plinths along Vine Street, adjacent to the historic City Wall, encourage the voicing of individual opinions, the sharing of reflections on the city, stories of origin, as well as prompting informal discussions and connections held along a walkable route.

SPEAKERS' PLINTHS is commissioned by the Aldgate Connect BID.

Team: Urban Radicals, AKT II, Millimetre.

With thanks to: Amy Kempa and Sabina Adron.
