I'm an architect designing and researching mixed-use and public buildings.
Why I was interested in this project:
I wanted to discover hidden stories of architecutre in this rich and mysterious area of London.
Significant Buildings Researched:
1. Idea Store [view]
Ideas Store provides great experience for everybody who wants to study, research, socialize and participate in various events; all these activities can be spontaneously accommodated within this efficient space.
2. Albion Brewery [view]
The buildings are not very well seen from the public space due to the street stalls. It is one of very few buildings in the area that has a front courtyard which is the element that should be celebrated in some ways – at least in terms of visual accessibility.
3. 333-335 Whitechapel Road [view]
4. 337 Whitechapel Road [view]
It would be very useful to have the information of the building’s history accessible to the public at the building. The pub makes good use of open space which uses to be commercial premises (number 339-345). This corner space, if treated carefully, will become a valuable urban asset to the pub and the area.
5. The Chronos Building [view]
6. 27a Mile End Road [view]
