Seeing what’s there for the first time… Architectural Unmasking of Northolt, London

This work is part of the Vertical Project that was undertaken by Kingston University Architecture Department the school year 2009-10. The thesis is inspired by the (Design For LondonEast London Green Grid.

Northolt Village Green is a park within a tight urban environment. It accommodates a 1400 year-old Saxon Village, a traditional School, a Chapel and some more architectural remainders of the Victorian Era. The park is not complemented by this treasure and its people keep ignoring it by building around it. However, by close observation and appreciation the park was willing to reveal itself to us.

My group was ultimately responsible for investigating and promoting the area of Northolt. Our approach became a more poetic investigation which led the group to be inspired by the existing place rather than trying to implement amendments. We have located and recorded 5 artefact/point on our route as our representational pieces of our presentation. The 5 points are interrelated and interlinked.
