A series of playful and experimental avenues for critical reflection on issues at stake in and around the neighbourhood around of NW8, London.

Starting with curiosity, and leading to research, games were devised to temporarily activate abandoned developments in the area. Simultaneously creating statements about failed policy making in NW8 and raising questions about the promises of the pending regeneration.

Each game overlays a series of new play rules in relation to the spatial qualities, history, access, and pending changes specific to the space, whilst leaving behind two permanent plaques; one including the informal research related to the space, and the other, the set of rules for the game devised.


In collaboration with students at City of Westminster College. Produced as part of Communal Knowledge, The Showroom, 2012
