FINSBURY TOWN HALL
by Alcan Zekia
This project aims to challenge the definition of conservation, to instead take Le Duc’s approach, by retaining the spirit of this public building in a way that is sensitive to the values of the existing architecture yet responsive to the needs of the local community. Therefore, the town hall may once again become a place for the civic life as well as allow local Councils to deliver a service to their respective communities in new ways. The installation project initiated this idea through exploring the Colombian community in Elephant & Castle.
