Using the boundary of the Ocean Estate, which is home to 90% of the proposed mosque’s patrons, this study shows the age of the buildings around Shandy Park. Using Historical Maps for raw data, the darker the building, the older it is. This is particularly interesting when looking at the site’s immediate context, where only the Arbour Centre and the building to the east of the park; now used as a learning support, are older than sixty odd years.


The final project’s site is set in Stepney, London. Rather than going deep into the East London Green Grid as discussed in Green Grid Primer, this will act as a model site, which offers the chance to test the ideas of Public House already observed in previous works. The precise location is Shandy Park (highlighted on map), is located close to both Stepney Green and Mile End london underground stations. It sits amongst dense urban social housing and contains the Stepney Shahjalal Mosque & Cultural Centre, currently contained in temporary Portacabins, and the Arbour Youth Centre.
