one hundred desires for Southwark Street

Juliet led this public realm project as a founder member of muf architecture/art. muf were selected to work collaboratively with five other practices to develop innovative approaches to public realm design across the Bankside area. This project is a pilot project for the a kilometer long Southwark Street that was implemented to coincide with the opening of Tate Modern. It set out design principles for street geometry reclaiming an of redundant carriageway as public space through negotiation with building owners. It tested a material palette and design rules for integrating; furniture, signage, landscape and lighting. In the process of developing the project the artist Katherine Clarke made a video documenting one hundred people’s desires for Southwark Street.
