Over the summer we have continued our international work as part of the Social Life of Cities; running workshops in Chicago to co-design crime prevension tools for south-side communities, and working with the City of Malmö to help them develop a new placemaking model for their peripheral estates that can be part funded by social investment. Also, the Social Life of Cities, essays on everyday urbanism from 10 cities, will be published shortly. For a preview, check out the essays already serialised on Urban Times.
Closer to home we ran a series of 12 deliberative workshops to design proposals for Somerleyton Road in Brixton and Lambeth Council have now asked us to work with residents of the Cressingham Gardens estate in Tulse Hill to develop options for the future of the estate. We have also moved on from NESTA's first floor into our new office in Peacock Yard near Elephant & Castle in South London.
