Resourceful City publication now online
LSE Cities’ MSc City Design Research Studio focused on the Elephant & Castle in south London as a site for thinking about the potential of the ‘resourceful city’. Against the backdrop of large-scale redevelopment in the area, and amid the wider rhetoric of the ‘smart’ city, the students aimed to explore in more critical ways the assets, resources and capacities of such an urban context. Focusing on the central regeneration site and on the local streets and spaces that run out from it, the Studio groups analysed the connections and disconnections, diverse actors and interests, problems and potential that characterise this complex piece of city.
Resourceful City was designed and edited by MSc students Regina Kertapati and Claudia Sinatra. It can be read as a PDF (for each chapter) here.
