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.
