In the distant future, when/if Argent finish the redevelopment of the railway lands behind kings cross station, a new London University of the Arts will take up residence in Lewis Cubitt’s Granary building (the huge Victorian building in the middle of the site). The Flickr photo feed on this site led me to a project by some students at Central St Martins on how to bring the square in front of the Granary to life.
It’s bleeding edge stuff but reflects how young designers see urban spaces and the relationship of younger people with technology. My favourite concept is a Nintendo Wii style fishing game alongside Regents Canal using mobile phones. You can see their tutor’s views here and a set of photos here. If you haven’t used a Wii you might not get this. But i have fond memories of my 64 y.o. mother playing a great game of Wii tennis at Xmas.
