Scout created a series of “Points of Welcome” for the Festival of the Neighbourhood in London, a summer-long celebration exploring the communities we all live in.
Bricks, fences and 'For Sale' signs are on our street and yours; they are the neighbourhood materials between the street and all our front doors. The project not only provided information on the Festival of Neighbourhood and provided a eye-catching spots to meet people, but also to brough a bit of ‘home’ to the Southbank. We wanted people to sit on them, draw on them, ring them – and make themselves at home.
Made in RARA, the structures were transformed into feasting furniture for the Hackney Harvest street feast on the newly pedestrianized Narrow Way.
