THE ‘MEANWHILE’ SCHEME

01.03.19

“More than 22,000 commercial properties in the capital have been vacant for at least six months and 6,700 acres of land, the equivalent in size to the entire London Borough of Lambeth, remain undeveloped despite having planning permission for homes, offices or shops.” In order for the blank canvases of London to be utilised, “meanwhile” projects are a movement in the right direction. Not only does this utilise unused space, it enables forgotten space the opportunity to regenerate neighbourhoods.
