I don't need to remind anyone of what happened at Pop Brixton where the final, Collective-partnered version was considerably different/slightly different/absolutely identical to the original proposals.So do I, but how much of this proposal do you expect to survive through to the finished thing?
Precisely my point, on paper whats not to like about this scheme, plenty of facilities for artists, musicians, photographers local entrepeneurs to have acess to studios, editing suites, recording facilities. So how's that all going to fund itself. It wont, and I suspect the finished result of this will be a long way from these proposals.I don't need to remind anyone of what happened at Pop Brixton where the final, Collective-partnered version was considerably different/slightly different/absolutely identical to the original proposals.
And the comparisons made were laughably illogical / fairly sound / well consideredI don't need to remind anyone of what happened at Pop Brixton where the final, Collective-partnered version was considerably different/slightly different/absolutely identical to the original proposals.
I don't know what's the matter with us all. How dare we question what's going on in our area and try to hold people to account over self styled community projects!How very dare us, what a fucking liberty eh. You're right, I hang my head in shame, obviously they should be alowed to do what ever they like.
Excellent, well done you, you've clearly grasped and embraced the causes for concern over Pop, I've no doubt any future contribution from you in regards to Levels will prove to be equaly incisive.View attachment 79727
I'm screenshotting the image literally showing what they have promised the community.
So they can be held to account.
Alright so they've not promised a spade and fork - but if there's no vintage Rolls on level 3 when this thing is done, I'm going to kick off.
If We Don't Save Bussey Building, Peckham Is Fucked | VICE | United KingdomLast week it was reported that Southwark council had rejected plans to turn a multi-story car-park, currently home to exhibition space Bold Tendencies and Frank's Rooftop Bar, into 800 affordable artists' studios. Instead the council opted for a collaboration between a Mayfair-based developer and Carl Turner Architects; the gang behind themuch criticised"Pop: Brixton" hell-scape. Focusing on "multi-use event spaces, pop-up retail and cafe/bars" the scheme will target "ambitious young professionals" and offer a mere 50 artists' studios. If the Brixton model is followed, the pop-up will prop-up property prices for a few years, before the council cashes in by selling the car-park to another developer.

I'm just completely bored with the same concept and formula being used again and again. Container Park/Car Park/Warehouse + expensive street food + expensive drink + clever marketing + art = new cool in-flight magazine-ready destination for narrow demographic.<grump>
If property prices weren't ludicrous and generally people weren't getting screwed over, that place might have some interest to me. As it is, it's just depressing.
Yup. It's like a franchise.I'm just completely bored with the same concept and formula being used again and again. Container Park/Car Park/Warehouse + expensive street food + expensive drink + clever marketing + art = new cool in-flight magazine-ready destination for narrow demographic.
