Here at TC we love unique, fun and innovative ways of reinventing everyday spaces. Bankside, London has achieved this through successfully improving its pedestrian experience by constructing a playful extension to the area’s footpath. The modular walkway creates a colourful addition to the current monochromatic urban space, brightening up the experience for the area’s pedestrians.
Pathway Activation has been a popular action to repurpose and reinvent spaces all over the world in recent years. Just like Steer Davies Gleave in London, students attending George Westinghouse High School in Brooklyn, New York were passionate about brightening up their concrete jungle. With the help of their local school community, students were able to transform the space from bland to bling through the addition of temporary colourful bench seats, milk carton garden beds and greenwall made from recycled materials.
