I hadn't heard of this till it poppped up on a tweet today - are other WFAN members aware of this? has anyone been involved in this process? I'm really interested in how it came about
"38 Hoe Street is a new project space for the delivery and showcasing of a series of improvements for Walthamstow Town Centre and Hoe Street and encouraging the street to become a place for events and activities . The improvements are part of Project 2013 funded by The Council and aims to enhance the character of, and bring new life to this section of Hoe Street.
38 Hoe Street is a fluid place for a range of people to showcase their skills and ideas, explore and reveal the identity, culture, potential and pride of Walthamstow Town Centre and Hoe Street. Creative events and activities will explore networks of different people and purposes, that bind the place together – physically, conceptually, economically and subliminally, and will empower local communities to rebuild their relationships with, and shape the character of the area."
Sounds interesting - thanks for posting, Thomas. I'll try to get down there to have a look at some point....
The project space is part of the larger Walthamstow Town Centre and Hoe Street Regeneration programme. The exterior was developed by design practise Polimekanos, as a model to demonstrate principles of good shopfront design as part of SHOPPORTUNITY - a project to improve retail frontages on Hoe Street. The interior was developed by East architects who are leading the design team.
A new project officer, Kate Batchelor, has just been appointed to programme the space along with the design team/artists in residence, see http://38hoestreet.co.uk/designers/. If you would like to get involved please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
