Peckham Square

During 1993 the practice was commissioned to design a new public square for the London Borough of Southwark.

The square comprises three principal elements: a raised paved section adjacent to Peckham High Street providing an environment for market-place activities and major public events; a 35-metre span steel and timber canopy signalling the entrance to Peckham town centre from Burgess Park; and a smaller paved area within the park providing a quieter less formal environment.

The design was developed with two prominent public artists, one contributing to the surface treatment of the square and another conceiving an active light sculpture illuminating the canopy and square in a series of changing colour sequences responding to local barometric pressure.
