design exhibition

The Shape Newham Design Exhibition is an online gallery providing the opportunity to explore the design proposals for Shape Newham projects.

Between September 2019 and March 2020 local residents have participated in Assemblies and Design Committees to select locations for projects, help create the design briefs and provide feedback on designs as they have developed. Thank you to everyone who participated in the creation of the 15 design proposals that can be downloaded below.

In addition, three design proposals are being developed with groups of young people. Artist have been running workshops with young people from Beckton Youth Zone, Forest Gate Youth Zone, Lister Community School and Rights & Equalities in Newham, since December 2019. Design proposals are being finalised and will be available to download once completed.

The final designs that are to be installed are likely to differ slightly from the design proposals shown below as they will be revised following site surveys and formal consultation with stakeholders and neighbours.
