Youth groupís bench mark for new square
Fri 1 December 2017, 5:16 pm
A group of 17 and 18 year-olds are designing and making a range of public furniture to sit in the new Wealdstone Square, which is a part of ambitious plans to transform Wealdstone town centre.
The youths have co-designed different pieces of furniture and taken it to the public for their feedback after developing concepts through a series of workshops organised by regeneration agency Spacemakers and designers Silo.
Matt Weston, director of Spacemakers, says: "Our ambition is to create a final piece of sell-able furniture, by Wealdstone, for Wealdstone, to be used across the town centre, to help change perceptions of young people and the area itself."
The Wealdstone Youth Workshop is part of a wider project by Harrow Council to create a new public space at the centre of Wealdstone that can bring the community together.
The overall project is led by We Made That who are consulting local people about their suggestions.
