Understanding our local area: the feeling of a place

walworth rd

We have began a project exploring the area around our office, between Walworth Road and Kennington tube.

We are working with Dr Colin Ellard, from the Urban Realities Laboratory at the University of Waterloo in Canada, using their tools and methodologies to understand the relationship between urban design and human psychology.

We plan to develop a series of walks to understand the psycho-geography of the area, working with local community organisations and residents.

This will be part of the Unsual Suspects Festival in the spring, organised by SIX.
