Cosham High Street
"Places From Spaces"
Cosham; 2008
Solent Architecture

Devised as part of the Solent Architecture Centre’s "Places from Spaces" programme, we invited Councillors, council workers, developers and architecture students to experiment with the layout and character of Cosham High Street.

By using large foam blocks, parasols and carpet, we were able to temporarily change the space and observe the effect this had on the people using the High Street, as well as promote peer group learning through experience and practice.
