Battersea Urban PioneersJune - September 2010
Eight young people living or studying in Lambeth and Wandsworth were selected from 19 applicants to take part this project focussed on the relationship between architecture and energy and transport. On 21 June 2010, the Battersea Urban Pioneers met for the first time and were given an introduction to the history of the area by Andrew Saint from the Survey of London. They heard from David Twohig about Tresury Holdings’ plans for the Power Station and the broader scheme for Nine Elms, and took a trip up one of the Power Station Chimneys. From now until September, the eight Urban Pioneers will work with photographers, illustrators, filmmakers, architects and urban food producers to critically explore the redevelopment. They will present their work at an event at the Power Station on 14 September.
