The brief and client group for this Community Stage in the Park was developed by undergraduate students at London Met for local cultural initiatives

Architecture and Spatial Design at London Metropolitan University is committed to enabling students to develop projects through studio work that can be realised as built projects through support from ASD Projects, the live projects office. The Faculty’s ethos of education through engagement and experimentation is reflected in this work, a Community Stage in Victoriapark, Frankfurt.

The project was initiated by Undergraduate Studio 3 (Sandra Denicke-Polcher and Torange Khonsari) to identify the client group: a set of informal cultural organisations in Frankfurt.

Consultation via events such as tea parties and exhibitions manifested the joint desire for a new community stage in the park. The community and local authorities chose student Craig Harrison-Smith’s proposal, which references domestic aspects such as wallpaper from the park creator’s residence (Queen Victoria’s daughter).

The stage was completed in March 2011, providing flexible accommodation for activities from the everyday to special events. It has brought together disparate small cultural initiatives to become their collective platform for performing and collaborating.
