From the Demolished to the Ridiculous

Following the illegal demolition of Stratford’s Grade 2 listed Georgian Angel Cottage in 2007 the perpetrators were fined a mere £15,000. Global real estate developer Savills have now advised the owner on a planning application proposing to develop 180 units of student housing on the site!

As a challenge to the submitted proposal and following on from the art event ‘From the Picturesque to the Demolished’, Scare in the Community are calling for art and architecture proposals for the site of the demolished cottage.

The best elected proposal will be submitted as an official planning application to Newham’s planning department. The awards ceremony will be held at the nearby Railway Tavern pub around the time of the opening of ‘Europe’s largest urban shopping centre’, the Westfield in September 2011.

PROPOSALS can be any medium (video, architecture, performance, music etc) but MUST BE SUBMITTED ON THE OFFICIAL SUBMISSION FORM available from

Selected entries will then be presented by each artist at the event in a suitable format. The submission fee is £5 which will be used to pay for the planning application fee of the winning project. All submitted entries will be included in a publication.
