A team of award winning architects, guerrilla gardeners, cooks and food producers has won the chance to transform empty space at Pope’s Road in Brixton.
Lambeth council and the Market Traders’ Federation ran a competition that would see the site where the ice rink used to be transformed for the next two-years.
The competition captured public imagination at events, in the press and on social media and the last stage was to choose between two locally based finalists.
The grow:brixton team consists of award-winning Carl Turner Architects, The Edible Bus Stop – guerilla gardeners and landscape experts – Canteen – socially minded food organisation – and Engineers Structure Workshop, all based in Lambeth.
You can read more about the project and see the two finalists’ presentations, on the Future Brixton website.
