As a reaction to the ongoing redevelopment of King’s Cross, the introduction of a service-interface creates an economically independent health service, which operates autonomously from NHS funding. This new methadone substitute programme caters for those users who are unable to register with GPs and rely on services, which are accessible only to those registered with their local council. As a piece of urban infrastructure, a network of eight specific sites along Euston Road generates an alternative financing scheme (developed in partnership with Boots® and the GLA) that questions the notion of a purely physical change to the urban fabric.

In response to the reciprocal relationship between publicity and everyday architectural practice, this book examines the mechanisms by which architects seek publicity and manage to establish themselves and their work ahead of their colleagues. Through the essays of specialist contributors, this book enables the reader to understand the complex relationship between what they see as the built environment and the unwritten stories behind how it came about.

Spaces of Uncertainty is a collaborative of two architects, Kenny Cupers and Markus Miessen, working at different institutions and locations. They do not form an office, but present a collection of ideas about architecture and spatial practice. Their collaborative work started off in Berlin in 2002, where they worked on a publication, Spaces of Uncertainty. Moving between urbanism, sociology and the visual arts, this project presented urban research and a photographic essay on the life of leftover spaces in Berlin. By documenting activities such as leisure, temporary living, urban agriculture, informal trade, and social encounters, the research addressed the micro-politics of public space, thereby adding energetic realism to the overwhelming rhetoric of loss that dominates the current discourse. An international exhibition continued this investigation with three case studies in Berlin, Brussels and London. Their recent ongoing work attempts to rethink the position from which to intervene in the spatial practices that make up urban societies today. Leaving the vertical position of the architect to roam the network of urban situations, it aims to develop research strategies geared towards spatial practice. The exploration of urban culture as a process unfolding in a multiplicity of spaces, allows the terrain of action to shift towards the multifaceted dynamics of the contemporary city. With contributions by Margaret Crawford, Hilde Heynen, Paul Davies, Paul Halliday et al. [less ▲]
