Empson Street Imaginary
Empson Street’s protection as a Strategic Industrial Location paradoxically enables local, community and civic activities. This schism between designation and use is the basis for an alternative model of development that exists beyond the dominant authorities in the production of space. A development strategy that resists wholesale land designations and instead embraces the emancipatory potential of partial, piecemeal and constitutive space-making.
