Urban Ghosts

year 3 project 1


Adaptive re-use of a disused London Underground station as a series of circus based performance spaces

The existing spaces in the building are strongly associated with movement. The platforms have a literal connection to horizontal movement and the lift shafts convey vertical movement.

Our design aims to preserve and highlight this heritage through the use of circus based acts and the movement of our performers through these spaces. A purpose built theatre sits above the existing lift shaft for larger, more formal performances.
