Adventures in Arcadia

About the show

Following the river Lea from Hackney Wick to Harlow, we explore new ideas in productive living, and make proposals for types of settlement.

The London masses may be on the cusp of a locational shift, from an urban renaissance to an arcadian arrival. As international capital continues to inflate the centre’s value the waves of settlement push ever outwards. We all want space - to sleep, eat, think, build, grow, shout and share – but few can afford to live where the many think they want to. Can we develop a more open and inclusive model of settlement located away from the centre, on the edges of the city, that combines the social and cultural potential of the urban with the spatial generosity and productiveness of the rural?
