The Movement Café

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Spatial Design / Spatial Design / 2013

The Movement Café is a café, theatre, local landmark, meeting place and poem. It was designed and built in 16 days to greet locals and visitors arriving at Greenwich DLR station for the London 2012 Olympic events. The café turned a hole in the ground left by demolition into a fabulous community space run by not-for- profit Greenwich Cooperative Development Agency. It exploits the sunken plot to conjure a natural amphitheatre, accessible by ramp and lined with stepped seating – all hand-made and hand- painted including the furniture. The structure is crowned with a tower of scaffolding to hold the words from a tweet by poet Lemn Sissay.
