This set of photos were taken in the beginning of February 2014, in hopes that the process of documenting the construction of the area then reviewing and disseminating the images after will provide me with inspiration for a photography project centered around this huge regeneration project.
‘One the Elephant’ is part of Lend Lease’s development, and I don’t know what or who came up with the name but I wish I did know. Maybe it will grow on me, and maybe it won’t.
‘Eileen House’ is not part of Lend Lease’s development, but it is part of the regeneration of the area, and begins to show the scope of demolition and construction that is happening here across the roundabout and all over Southwark. When the building is complete, its metal and glass facade will mirror that of the Shard, which is in this photo’s background.
