The architects state that creativity should not be linked to a social status, and therefore London needs new affordable spaces. Their design, called Minima Moralia, is a tiny, cellular pop-up space to be inhabited by designers, sculptors, painters, musicians and other creatives. It’s a naked minimalistic structure, consisting of a modular steel frame that creates an empty grid with multiple potential for internal configurations.
The pop-up element of the design makes it very flexible and easily movable. The project is described as a type of urban acupuncture that targets empty or disused places and effectively brings life into them. In a city like London, where space is scarce and expensive, this is what the future could look like. The installation was on display last month during the London Festival of Architecture on a Dalston Roof Park.
