The strip is located in Walworth, London borough of Southwark, on the border between the infamous Aylesbury Estate and Burgess Park. The estate is a fine example of inner city adversity where crime is prevalent; the 46ha park is underused and lacks any program.
The project has a limitation: it must be a 10m strip - one of its dimensions must not exceed 10m. First step - a mapping analysis: safety, divided into two categories - physical and visual - is mapped along common pedestrian routes. This reveals the spots with the worst conditions to later improve them; rather than seeking existing pleasures to emphasize them, this project will deal with anti-pleasure and its elimination through providing a large and spread out community centre and activities for the youth.
