    Want to be a City-Maker?

    Are you ready to engage, change, and improve your community?

    Do you want to win prizes, learn new design skills and get the Citizenship Award? 

    In partnership with Lambeth and HeadstartED, DSDHA have established the “Many Different Voices” project - a 3-in-1 online teamwork, training and competition project, to give school students a chance to be part of the real-life redesign of Lambeth roads.

    This exciting project will see school students work on an online project to design improvements to street space in Railton Road, one of Lambeth's new Low Traffic Neighbourhoods.

    Students aged 13-16 will use Minecraft to enter a design competition, with the chosen ideas becoming a reality on Brixton streets.

    The project begins on Thursday 13 August with an online workshop.

    Interested students should register at HeadstartEDhub.com using their school email address. 

    DSDHA helped set the design principles for judging the competition entries and will run online Q&A sessions and workshops for the project.

    The Many Different Voices project is being run by the studio's Spatial Intelligence Group, who are currently working on responses to Covid-19 within our urban environment.

    DSDHA Submits Plans for a Major New Public Park in the City of London

    We have re-imagined Broadgate's Exchange Square as a bucolic landscape suspended above the tracks of Liverpool Street Station. The proposed scheme will increase the green space four-fold and deliver a major new public park for the City of London, with its meandering forms echoing the estuarine character of East Anglia: the ultimate destination of the departing trains below. 

    This design builds upon the success of the first phase of our spatial strategy for the estate, which applied the notion of Time-Based urbanism to deliver innovative designs for Broadgate Circle, Finsbury Avenue Square and Broadgate Plaza.

    Works to Exchange Square are expected to start on site in the autumn, with completion anticipated in the summer of 2020.
