Transforming Public Spaces


Oculus, designed by Roz Barr Architects and engineers Ramboll, is the latest in a series of temporary interventions driven by NLA and The Building Centre, to test ideas to permanently transform Store Street's South Crescent from an under-used car park into a valued piece of public realm.

Hear Simon Silver, Head of Development at Derwent London, Roz Barr of Roz Barr Architects, Patricia Brown, Director of Central, Peter Murray, Chairman of NLA and Sean Affleck of Make discuss the transformation of the Crescent and latest approaches to creating new public spaces in the city, from the temporary to the permanent.

The talk will take place in Oculus, the new installation in the crescent outside The Building Centre. Free to attend.

Oculus is an NLA and Building Centre project, sponsored by Derwent London and supported by the Arts Council and the London Borough of Camden.
