Avenue of Art - Crossing Stories

Office for Crafted Architecture transform a pedestrian crossing on Southwark Street and encourage a creative exploration of Bankside
Valerie Beirne
Bankside Urban Forest Manager

A neighbourhood isn’t just a physical environment, the architecture of our cities are nothing without the people who live in them. We imbue memory, stories and emotions in these places and share them with others in the telling of our day. 

The newly created crossing on Southwark Street at the Menier building is a playful board game made up of words and pictograms which offer a starting point for an exploration of the surrounding locality. It is an invitation to wander the streets with your own memories and impressions, creating chance encounters with selected places and commissioned art works.  Pick up a map and let yourself be guided through the area with these graphic narratives.
