Unit 15 students are being exhibited!
East of Eden is a design research project that encompasses the creative output of the entire Department of Architecture and Landscape, from year one to postgraduate and across all the architecture and landscape programmes. Initiated to celebrate the Departments move into its new home in the heart of Greenwich, the project hopefully marks the start of a long and fruitful relationship with our new surroundings.
Three sites were chosen for this project through a mix of fortuitous circumstance, university connections and at the invitation of interested groups. The project name comes from the fact that all three sites East Greenwich, the Greenwich peninsula and Thamesmead are situated to the east of the ‘Edenic’ maritime campus.
For each of the three sites the Department is working alongside an external partner that represents a very different idea regarding the development of the area. In East Greenwich we are working with residents and the Greenwich society; on the Peninsula we are principally working with the Hong Kong based developers Knight Dragon and at Thamesmead we are working with Peabody Housing Trust.
