Change by Design 2014: Collective imaginations for contested sites in Euston
The UCL Urban Laboratory and the Bartlett Development Planning Unit are supporting the fifth instalment of the Architecture Sans Frontieres-UK Change by Design workshops, looking at how participatory design can be used to enhance the negotiation capacity of local groups when relating to large-scale development and regeneration initiatives in London. Building on participatory design tools developed in previous workshops in Brazil, Kenya and Ecuador, the Change by Design team (Naomi Shinkins, ASF-UK; Beatrice De Carli, School of Architecture of the University of Sheffield; Matthew French, UN-Habitat Afghanistan; and Alexandre Apsan Frediani, DPU) is partnering with Citizens UK and diverse groups of local stakeholders to generate community designed scenarios which seek to bring about positive outcomes of the proposed High Speed Two (HS2) rail link in the Euston area for local residents.
