Rethinking Golden Lane Estate - AA E+E Studies 2011

This project investigates the possibilities of Golden Lane Estate in London to become a sustainable community. It also explores the relationship between environmental sustainability and community reinforcement by the creation of new places and activities in relation to the microclimatic characteristics of the site. It starts by analyzing the estate in three different aspects: morphologically, functionally and environmentally. Observations and hypothesis stated from this analysis are then simulated in order to check their viability. As a result, this study proposes some urban and architectural strategies that will improve not only the environmental but also the social sustainability of Golden Lane Estate.

This project has been done in collaboration with Gabriel Felmer and Prachi Parekh
