Elephant and Castle Walkshop

An event hosted by LSE Cities in partnership with London Festival of Architecture

LSE Cities’ Senior Urban Fellow Adam Greenfield lead a slow and considered walk through Elephant and Castle. The walk looked for appearances of the networked digital in the physical capital city, and vice versa: apertures through which the things that happen in the real world drive the ‘network weather’, and contexts in which that weather affects what people see, confront and are able to do.
