This study responded to the clients brief of exploring potential for redevelopment on the site of the existing East End Market in Poplar. Chrisp Street Market was the first purpose-built pedestrian shopping area in the UK. It is located in Poplar in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and forms part of the eastern edge of the Lansbury Estate. The potential for the area needed to responded to the considerable growth in local population and the realisation of need for a destination architecture and program to re-energise the once important market area.
