In a programme curated by The Architecture Foundation together with local architecture practice Squire and Partners, the King's Cross neighbourhood will come alive from 6-8 July with a series of 'Urban Actions' aimed to improve our city. Part of the London Festival of Architecture 2012, this programme invites visitors to follow a trail of actions and discover the past and present of this ever-changing part of London.
From a petrol station transformed by Carmody Groarke, an urban picnic, and an imagination playground designed by David Rockwell, to dance performances by Sadler’s Wells, the weekend is set to be full of positive and transformative activity.
A specially commissioned Urban Actions Field Guide designed by Ken Kirton and published by Hato Press will also be available during the weekend with ideas and inspiration of how to create urban actions of your own.

The King's Cross Focus weekend is supported by King’s Cross Central Limited Partnership.
