East St. Live Project

Installations created by architecture students from the University of Brighton to promote Carnaval del Pueblo and London’s East Street Market.  The installations included a market stall of interactive games and a cocktail-making machine, and featured in the London Festival of Architecture 2016. 

The live project installations are an extension of a long-running partnership between Studio Gil and Carnaval del Pueblo , together they curated a series of events called The Latin Corridor, as part of RIBA’s Open Studios initiative for the London Festival of Architecture 2016 – a month-long programme of events and installations in the UK capital.

The project was seen as threefold in its outcomes: as a learning device for architectural students, to promote Carnaval del Pueblo’s advocacy work with the Latin American community, and to celebrate the vibrancy of East Street market.
