Fault Lines

Studio Egret West invited you to experience Fault Lines, which was an interactive map of Greater London that explored the sometimes forgotten edges of London’s local authority boundaries.


Made peripheral purely because of administrative lines, these places are rarely the focus of people’s attention or co-ordinated investment. Out of sight, out of mind, they can either be left behind or prosper in an unconventional way.


Fault Lines centres on a large-scale physical model that welcomes visitors to share thoughts around these peripheral environments through a collective mapping exercise. The model will mature and grow in complexity during the course of the installation, and become a platform for thought exchange and partnership building.


SEW asked you to consider: What potential lies in these surprisingly rich seams? And, what should be the shared pan-London agenda for creative partnerships between boroughs to ensure the economically, environmentally and socially sustainable growth of these ‘in between’’ places?


The installation was part of the LFA 2019, whose theme focused on 'Boundaries'. The London Map has now found a new home with U+I -the property developer and investor focused on regeneration - who continue to raise the debate.
