Critical Heritage: Understanding the physical as well as intangible value of heritage to help promote economic, cultural and social growth

This thesis investigates the physical as well as intangible value of heritage in a deprived area of Southwark, London. While the adaptive reuse of heritage buildings aids environmentally-conscious design, it also feeds ideas of collective memory and urban design that can reinvigorate communities.

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.
