Roadside Tabletop Review
THE AIM OF THE TABLETOP REVIEW WAS TO DEMONSTRATE THE VALUE OF SITUATED DISCUSSION AS A RESEARCH TOOL TO BOTH PRODUCE, AND REPRESENT, NEW KNOWLEDGE OF LOCAL REQUIREMENTS.
The phenomenon of regeneration that has created cycles of crisis for communities in which tenants find themselves without adequate housing alternatives demand, now more than ever, a clearer alliance with local people.
The Roadside Review was a chance to brdige this disconnect between the public, and the publics’ service - the very stuff of architecture. The table served as a backboard to discuss, comment, and draw - looking to ‘the site’ and its users as a critical basis to design.
