Publica led a night walk for the Night Time Commission with @thenorthbankbid and an array of fantastic speakers on Wednesday evening. We discussed life and culture in London at night and examined how artificial light shapes the character and identity of the public realm after nightfall.
TRX team is doing public engagement with businesses in the area to prepare for the surrounding public realm development.
TRX is taking seriously the need for a dynamic public realm. Designed to seamlessly exist within its neighbourhood, TRX will remain porous to the larger landscape around it, allowing its public spaces to fully integrate into the urban fabric.
The Greatful Heron by Lauren Brevner and James Harry was one of the ten murals created as part of Granville Island’s Art Smash. You can find this beautiful mural inside the parking garage closest to The Chain & Forge.

Until recently there was no commonly accepted term for ‘public space’ in Russia. Formerly, the idea of ‘the public’ came with negative connotations of control and collectivism. But a new generation is beginning to see the public realm as a fluid concept that embraces digital space as much as the physical public space of cities. ‘Reclaiming the Streets: the future of public space in Russia’ brings together @strelka_institute, @british_design, @nicolay.boyadjiev and @vcky_rchrdsn on Wednesday 24 October to discuss a programme that is set to change the physical landscape and culture of Moscow and many other Russian cities.
