Although attributed to the decline in London’s club culture (a rise in festivals, the popularity in dating apps, the advent of a 24h society as well as the growing well-being trend[1]), for the sake of tackling this issue architecturally I have attempted to intervene in the areas that concern the governance of space; policy, licensing and development. Through large scale installation art I have exhibited 2 different policy and licensing proposals that function as a demonstration to the rave community of what might be achievable with an alternative logic of development. My design work now utilises these prior propositions as governing anchor points to influence the propositional development, a new neighbourhood situated in a rapidly developing area in east London, Canning Town.
