This weekend the lovely Johannah Fening showcased her final MArchD thesis ‘Reclaim Brixton’, a fantastic insight to what Brixton could look like if the process of redevelopment retained aspects of Afro-Caribbean Culture.
“The virtual event will include a summary of her research where she analyses two case studies as well as a video presentation of her proposal. This project has recently been nominated for the RIBA Silver Medal award.
Her project responds to the following question:
How can architectural interventions, disrupt current gentrified models of development to protect, enhance and empower Black migrants and diasporas, to prevent the erasure of Afro-Caribbean culture using Brixton as a catalyst for social reform?”
