Dr Agustina Martire will be giving the lecture: The Death and Life of Public Streets at the CASS London Met on Wednesday 1 November at 2pm.

Streetspace Workshop
Date: Thursday, November 2nd & Friday, November 3rd 2017
Time: 10am – 6pm
Location: The Cass, London Met, Aldgate Campus

StreetSpace is a multidisciplinary project examining superdiverse streets. At this workshop we will analyse physical, historical and experiential aspects of a London street and provide an alternative way of thinking about its planning, preserving and development. We will deal with problems of community, class, gender, crime, commerce and consumption, and also culture, performance and ritual. Streets are complex entities, have evolved slowly through history but can be radically transformed by development.
By the end of each workshop we will present three draft maps that illustrate the liveability, plurality and complexity of the streets observed.

Workshop format
Academics, students and practitioners will work in three groups:
History – archive docs: photographs, street directories, oral histories.
Aspirations – planning, projects and policies for the area. Recent and current.
Perceptions – ethnography studies – photographs, interviews and surveys
