CREATIVE FACTORIES (2013)

The aim of this document is to define the distinctive character of collective workspace in Hackney Wick and Fish Island (HWFI). The area is already renowned as the densest concentration of artists’ studios in Europe, but the secret to its affordability and vitality lay within its distinctive factory blocks of collectively organised units. It is therefore crucial to understand the social and spatial factors at play in these creative factories. This document
takes into account the specific arrangements seen in several of the factory blocks an studio units in HWFI, and derives from them a general set of principles aimed at sustaining and extending this environment of creative production.
