About This Live Project

The Live Project aims to reconsider the estate in terms of navigation, identity, ownership, connections, environment, community, security and the long term future of Lansdowne

We hope to raise aspirations for the area and challenge the view that the estate is fixed with little opportunity for local people to make an impact in their built environment.

We aim to devise forms of communication and representation that can creatively engage people living in the estate, tackling architectural issues for the shared spaces in the estate.

This may be in the form of physical permanent and/or temporary interventions within Lansdowne.

3 Phase Strategy

As proposals have been worked up, the Lost In Lansdowne team have propsed a 3 phase strategy, which corresponds to the nature of each proposal. The phases have been called #1, #2 and #3:

#1 = Immediate implementation, non skilled work needed and with little or no cost attached

#2 = Short term implementation, some skilled work with some cost attached

#3 = Long term implementation, needing skilled work, time and substantial funding

This phasing strategy has allowed each propsal to be categorized, creating a flexible 'primer' for Lansdowne. Each area of the brief (gardens, residents, internal etc) therefore has #1, #2 and #3 level proposals, meaning that mix and match strategies can be put into place which are flexible enough to respond to the fluctuating nature of funding, skills and labour.

This 3 phase strategy has been designed to ensure that each area of the brief can begin to be tackled, regardless of funding, skills and labour.

Further to our earlier conversations, we hope to hire a shop unit in a prominent location on London Road from Monday 17th November- Sunday 30th November, (this will include setting up time for the displays.)

Your group has offered to share some of your work for this display and we are happy to put it together into an exhibition, however it would be great if you could let us know what you may intend to include.

Alternatively you could be involved in the curating of the space, which will also be shared by toher live projects and the work of the distinctive sharrow action group. A few of us are meeting on Monday 3rd November at 1.30pm in the Old Sharrow Junior School- you would be welcome to attend.

For more information, please contact me on julia@sharrowcf.org.uk or through sharrowaction.blogspot.com
