STIK in Shoreditch: London’s Gentrification Problem

AOT Architecture of Tomorrow AOT Project Douglas Turner STIK London Art Scene Shoreditch Brooklyn Oakland Williamsburg

We live in a time of great urban upheaval. Our cities are being sold off to corporate interests on an international scale. Our concerns should reflect the global nature of the epidemic.

While Shoreditch is in London, the story is the same as Oakland and Brooklyn—we all know that. Whether we can or not do anything about it, I’m pointing to our perspective. You have to see the whole Beast to defeat it, or defend from the dangers and havoc it wreaks. Most of all welcome the friction; let the sparks fly and all the while stand for something other than your own personal struggles.
