Brixton-based architecture and design studios Squire & Partners and AWMA are excited to be collaborating once again for this year’s London Festival of Architecture with Who Cares?, a community window installation which explores and showcases the theme of this year’s festival: Care.
The bespoke display showcases what Care means to communities – and how this has changed over the past year – by sharing thoughts from local schools, young people and families.
Drawing inspiration from colourful prayer flags, submissions printed on seed-infused recycled paper are suspended in the windows of The Department Store, ReSole in Brixton Village and inside Pop Brixton, forming an art installation and symbol of care that residents and friends of Brixton can enjoy.
The installation will evolve throughout the month of June, inviting visitors to stop and contemplate what Care means to them. Once the display is dismantled, the seed paper will be gifted to friends of Brixton to plant, giving the installation a life after the festival through community seed dispersion.
We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.
Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
