Chance

Even today we don’t have to look far to confront inequalities. ‘Equal opportunity’ seems to remain a utopian dream and the public is right to be concerned about the growing gap between different social classes. In this project, architecture is used as a method to find new ways and promote ‘chance’ to (re-)connect divided communities. Cutting through the facades of Kensington, an affluent district in London, the project exposes the inequality within the borough. Inspired by architecture of chance, it creates new typologies and spaces, which set the conditions for very different co-existing worlds to have a dialogue and connect.

MORE is a part of Open Studio project run by the School of Architecture + Cities at the University of Westminster to make its design, research and practice-based work available online while it is happening.
