The Covid-19 pandemic has severely damaged the economy and atmosphere of Camden Town, and at the same time, it also highlighted the social significance of public space and the importance of re-gathering people. Looking through a space design method to re-activate this city is the direction of my efforts during the year.
I have tried to mix two different elements in this project to build a participatory, flexible, green public space, which aims to connect people in the community and reactive Camden Town in the post-epidemic era. The site is the historic Interchange warehouse alongside the Regent’s Canal. Once a place for the interchange of different forms of cargo transport, it will be reinvented as a welcoming public place. The building will house a gin distillery, an interior garden, and a community seed exchange to create employment, educational experiences, and entertainment.
