There’s something strangely unnerving yet fascinatingly compelling about this detail from Hawkins\Brown’s latest regeneration project for Peabody. Seeming to hark from the work of 1980s art/architecture collective SITE, this ghostly form bursting forth from the brick is the work of sculptor Rodney Harris, commissioned to create the brick reliefs recalling existing residents’ memories. The St John’s Hill housing near Clapham Junction station in London is undergoing phased redevelopment of four to eight storey blocks that will ultimately double the residential density of the site; whether that number includes those who have already passed to the other side is not stipulated.
