London School of Architecture: How dense is superdense?

This year, Penoyre & Prasad, in collaboration with Allies and Morrison, led an LSA Design Think Tank exploring the theme of living at superdensity.

Taking a site on the Old Kent Road, the group of six students explored the the experiential qualities of this high density housing – what is it actually like to live there? What are the qualities that can promote community and social interaction? How can we design for diversity and inclusiveness?  And how can the housing adapt to changing economic, social, cultural and technological paradigms where the very notion of home is being challenged.

The students work, alongside those of other Design Think Tanks, will be on show at the Roca Gallery.
