suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
philippos PHILIPPIDIS: The project is about a culture house located in the docklands of East London, which will anticipate the urban growth of Greater London and will act as a catalyst for local development. The programs include arts workshops, exhibition spaces, library and performance theatre which will work with local and regional scales. The design tools used to organise the overall composition were territorial differentiation and interstitial spaces, which were set by the relationship of the individual programs and their relationship with the context.
