Spatial: Intensification, Typologies and Land Use

"Intricate minglings of different uses in cities are not a form of chaos. On the contrary, they represent a complex and highly developed form of order."
Jane Jacobs

The final salon attempted to spatialise a lot of the issues that had come out of the previous two.

We felt it would make sense to test this in real situations, so proposed three sites that typified different urban conditions: Victoria - a dense urban transport hub; The Carpenter’s Estate - a metroplitan site identified in the London Plan for estate renewal and intensification; and an outer London site - Brent Cross, which is a common, but fast-becoming outdated typology, namely the out of town shopping centre.
Alongside each site, the groups were given some context by way of high level demographics, house ownership and land uses.

Through modelling and debate, solutions, themes and issues were raised which echoed and expanded upon those encountered in the previous salons.
