Becontree Forever

As part of Becontree Forever – a programme of art, architecture and infrastructure to mark the centenary of the UK’s biggest council housing estate – Studio Morison are going to ‘activate’ five neighbourhood shopping parades.

The artist duo will make a range of robust, terrazzo street furniture to activate the shopping parades across the estate, by ‘creating small islands of calm to transform places of passing into places of being still’.

Whether you can ‘activate’ a space by making it a place of ‘being still’ is up for debate.
