The Hidden Borders of Tilbury Town

In the studio, I wanted to think about the way in which politics affects architectural thinking. Borders occur in daily life, they are found in the very little details of people’s movement. It is where two extremes can meet, with all the conflicts, possibilities and potentials. I used the history of gypsies in Tilbury as a starting point to explore the marginalisation of a nomadic way of life. The displacement of people, the unemployed, the disabled and others, from London to Essex is similar to the movement of refugees. The project imagines Tilbury as a haven for those evicted from London. Based on the lifestyle of gypsies and other transient communities, I designed a nomadic and growing structure that adapts the uniform housing of Tilbury to other ways of living.
