Rainham Take me to the River

Posted on: August 31st, 2015 by Dan Jones No Comments

civic’s Dan Jones talks about our extension to the Rainham Royals Youth Centre in a short film accompanying the Architecture Foundation’s Take me to the River exhibition at the Royal Academy.

The exhibition celebrates the work of Peter Beard_Landroom’s project in Rainham alongside other architects who have been working in Rainham within the context of a strategy to improve the town’s public infrastructure. Delivered by the Greater London Authority and the London Borough of Havering over the past decade, the new work ranges in scale from landscape proposals by architects including East and What if: projects, to the remodeling of existing buildings by Civic Architects and Alison Brooks, and a new library, nursery and housing project designed by Maccreanor Lavington which formalizes a square outside Rainham station.
