Fresh or death

the Elephant and Castle debate

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Elephant and Castle is one of central London's most maligned and unloved locations.

Brutal 1960s architecture and infrastructure dominates the landscape, favouring the car over the pedestrian and creating the feel of somewhere stuck in time.

But with ambitious regeneration plans and a public/private sector partnership announced - are the Elephant's fortunes finally looking up?

Panelists include Paul Finch (Architectural Review - Chair), Sarah Gaventa (CABE), Nigel Hugill (Lend Lease), Rowan Moore (Architecture Foundation), Tony Travers (London School of Economics), Jon Abbott (Southwark Council), Richard Powell (First Base) and Jennifer Ross (Tibbalds Planning and Urban Design).
