Welcome to Vauxhall Crossing

News May 27, 2021 - Daniel Adusei Welcome to Vauxhall Crossing

‘Welcome to Vauxhall Crossing’ is a new event in Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, that takes inspiration from popular video games and the area’s rich heritage to create a community celebration for Vauxhall’s young people.

During the event on Saturday 26 June, 10:00 – 16:00, a portion of the Garden will become our ‘village’, containing a checkerboard of ‘islands’. Each island will contain a bespoke selection of ‘building blocks’, inviting young people to explore and play with the creation of forms, spaces and architecture on their island.

They will be given a brief to respond to which will reference wider conversations being facilitated by VX1 across Vauxhall with regards to its future objectives and plans. It is a chance to come together in a Covid-secure way and build shared experiences through an exciting and memorable creative activity.

Sign up for ‘Welcome to Vauxhall Crossing’ via eventbrite.

There is also a digital version of the event, utilising an online sandbox to allow young people who cannot attend the event to have the opportunity to participate.

The event is part of the London Festival of Architecture, and is delivered in partnership with New Practice.
