We teamed up with New London Architecture, in association with Ramboll and RIBA London's Great Titchfield Street Festival Committee, to open FitLondon on Store Street South Crescent as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2014.
The Crescent has been filled with installations, events and the FitLondon exhibition which is sponsored by Transport for London and CABE. FitLondon explores how the built environment and policy decisions can make communities healthier.
From 14 July to 17 July, Ade Aboaba from FIT CITY will be hosting fitness classes in The Crescent in association with the exhibition FitLondon and as part of FITzrovia and Bloomsbury 2014. Classes will run from 12.30pm -1.00pm.
Classes are open to all and are free to join, but numbers are limited so registration is essential. Please email email@example.com with the days you would like to join in.
FIT CITY Ltd develops opportunities for people to engage with and explore their urban environments through physical activity. FIT CITY is here to help you integrate exercise into your daily life to achieve your health, wellbeing, fitness and sporting event goals.
Students from the University of East London alongside Alex-Scott Whitby and support from Ramboll have created a timber pavilion with a tensile membrane roof, on the Crescent. This is situated next to interactive edging made from strong recycled cardboard tubes designed by Arup Associates and a CLT-cut picnic bench, designed by KLH UK, Corbett & Tasker and David Miller Architects.FPARK by Fletcher Priest Architects has also covered part of the Crescent using recycled, artificial grass, connecting the installations.
This installation has been made possible by Arup Associates; Corbett & Tasker Structural Engineering; Construction Products Association; David Miller Architects; Fletcher Priest; KLH UK; London Borough of Camden; Ramboll; Remmers; Ryder Architecture; and the students of University of East London with Alex Scott-Whitby.
