Caravanserai. Canning Town.

I was recently asked by Cany Ash from Ash Sakula Architects to pop along and check out the Canning Town Caravanserai and get some photographs. So last week i spent an hour checking out how things are progressing there. The plan is to go back at some point when the sun finally comes out and more people are using the space.

Canning Town Caravanserai is a welcoming oasis hosted by locals, open to all visitors. It is a locally-driven public space bringing together trade, training, performance, a community garden, and a place to eat, drink and play. Mixing a café with art workshops, food stalls with performance spaces, and enterprise units with allotments, it will be hosted by locals and open to all. In short, a community space run by the community.
