London is undergoing a rapid transformation. Where is the space for communities in these visions?
In September 2014, Architecture Sans Frontières-UK in partnership with Citizens-UK, UCL, and the University of Sheffield undertook a workshop that focussed on the impact of the regeneration of the Euston area through the HS2 proposals. The aim of this engagement was to inform a Citizens Charter that captured local needs and aspirations for the foreseen large scale development around the station. ASF-UK utilised participatory design tools to engage with local residents, and this series of consultations uncovered a very different vision of the future than the one proposed by HS2.
