Summer 2012, the Southbank Centre created the ‘Festival of the World’, a site-­‐wide summer festival including inspirational arts projects from the UK and around the world. At the heart of the Festival, The Southbank Centre wanted a space where all the participating artists, Southbank staff and volunteers could meet, connect and socialise. As part of The Southbank Centre’s brief, it wanted a place that had the flexibility to perform multiple functions from a rehearsal space to a dining space and from a touch down workspace to a space for private meetings. It was intended that this ‘Festival Village’ would be a hub, functioning both as a practical and a social space where new friendships and collaborations could flourish. Two key principles underpinned the brief for the project. First, that the space was regenerative, bringing new life to an underused part of the Southbank, and secondly that the space was conceived and delivered through participation.
