Productive Synergies: A hybrid plan for Canada Water

The question of proximity between production and urban life, the conflicts and frictions it gives rise to, runs through the history of modern city planning. This document places the proposal in this history, uncovering urban tools to deploy for production in the twenty-first century. The context for articulating this problem is that of a rapidly de-industrialising city – London, where old forms of labour and a diverse fabric of small businesses are being pushed out of the centre to make place for housing and offices. 

Recognising the wealth, diversity and great precarity of Southwark’s texture of creative and productive industries, the strategy is devised as a means for small businesses and individuals to take risks and innovate in a protected and supportive environment. Its elements describe and aspire to forms of innovation which, by operating at smaller scales, have the potential to be more inclusive and capillary.
