Whilst leafing through the pages of BD this week i came across this:
Folly for a Flyover. It opened last night under the A12 motorway flyover by the Eastway in Hackney wick. It is set to be open for 6 weeks over the summer and will host a six week programme of cinema, performance and play, including boat tours, screenings and drop-in workshops.
I will be visting in a couple of weeks when i get the chance. But this is another example of pop up architecture which keeps on appearing across London.
Pop Up Architecture is a great idea as it takes, vacant or under used spaces and gives them a new lease of life, sometimes only for a few weeks at a time. So next time you see a vacant site in the city it could be playing host to the next temporary bar, restaurant, cinema or even shopping mall!
For More information on either of these pop up projects check out:
