Urban design critiques

Architects AHMM’s ideas for ‘Farringdon Futures’ one of the early urban design critiques, reimagined the future of the Guardian’s former headquarters as a mixed-use, flexible building – heralding today’s shared workspace buildings

For the London Festival of Architecture and its predecessor, the Clerkenwell Architecture Biennale, Lee Mallett and developer Roger Zogolovitch, created a series of Urban Design Critiques.

These identified areas of London that were/are struggling in urban design terms, such as Farringdon in Midtown, Waterloo Place in Westminster, the Oval in Tower Hamlets, and Somers Town and Euston Road in Camden.

We asked developer and architect teams to come up with design ideas to address problems. Ideas were presented in half day critiques over several years, and open to the public.
