Work in Progress Tour: Squaring the Corners by nimtim architects

17 June 2023

12:00 -16:00

Nimtim architects are bringing new public spaces to Dagenham, for people to meet, rest, grow and play. Transforming four underused corner plots on the Becontree Estate, this revitalisation of green space has undergone significant local consultation and co-design - and will provide community space that is in-part wild, intimate and social.

Opening later this summer, the public square will be the first of its kind on the Becontree Estate and residents are invited to take ownership of them. The designs borrow from the existing geometries, colours and materials within the estate.

Join us for an open-air preview of the square in construction phase, alongside a conversation with the architects, to learn how these spaces are being transformed.

Squaring the Corners is co-commissioned by Create London and the Royal Institute of British Architects for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.
