“Made in Camden” is a project which enables the new Camden Goods Yard community to construct their own community led garden and craft centre, which would form a community asset and social hub for this new development.
The proposal embraces the principles of the Slow Food movement. It aims to promote the tradition of mead making using resources collected on site, from which the pleasure of growth, making and drinking is linked with a commitment to the community and environment
This concept is also utilised as a metaphor for slow architecture. The building is constructed over a 20-years period, with a low-tech system and building material collected and produced on site with community engagement. The building itself is therefore the product of community effort, which serves and brings together the residents in the new development and in Camden.
