Unit 9

City within City / Windows within

Most unplanned cities, of which London is a spectacular example, are made up of multiple efforts either by individuals or social groups, corporate bodies, housing associations and developers. Generations of occupants settle and appropriate the fabric to which they can afford. From the Huguenots in late Seventeenth Century Spitalfields to the present-day Bangladeshi communities around Brick Lane who bring further characterisation to these urban enclaves.

Unit 9 worked on three sites in East London, both at a city scale and that of architectural fragments, considering the relationship that these scales of architectural concern have between each other.
