The planned regeneration in Deptford will impact the lives of all who live there. My urbanism explored public perception of this process and its product. I will continue to explore the relationship between the public and the construction of their urban realm by designing an interface between the two. The observatory that was my urbanism will evolve into the building; a series of spaces interlinked via views and the framing of activity, the consummation a public observation tower. This will act as a place for contemplation and reflection on the surrounding area, the magnificence and the destruction of human achievement.
