DK-CM's new public spaces in Barkingside

A short documentary explores how architecture can straddle multiple identities

Architects, DK-CM have reworked a series of public spaces in the Outer London borough of Redbridge using an architectural language drawing from Modernist master, Frederick Gibberd and Barkingside's traditional suburban high street. The project is part of a wider set of alterations enhancing the dual identity of the borough. This seemingly contradictory approach to urbanism suggests an alternative conception of place making which has much to teach peripheral locations elsewhere.
