submission by PTE Architects for the RIBA 'Forgotten Spaces'
competition was initiated by Alan Green (MSc UR, 2011) and Caroline Pillay
(MSc UR, 2011) and was one of the shortlisted entries currently being exhibited
at Somerset House.
The submission was based on project work done by Alan and
Caroline as part of the BENVGUR4: Preparing Regeneration Projects' module.
"Although the competition was aimed at architectural concepts the stimulus
for our submission was the MSc project. We used the idea developed during the
project for the regeneration of Peckham Rye Lane as the basis for the
design we submitted" says Alan.
RIBA London's Forgotten Spaces competition, sponsored by Ordnance Survey,
Qatari Diar and Design for London, invited proposals for overlooked pockets of
land in London and attracted more than 140 entries.
The shortlisted entries, including a model of the PTE entry are on exhibition
at Somerset House until 29 January.
