My Model City, my dream today, our dreams tomorrow.
The Horniman Museum

What might the city of the future look like? And whose ideas, needs and dreams should shape it?

As an area of London undergoing rapid change, South-East London becomes the testing ground for a new vision of urban life, created by young people from Peckham Platform and the Horniman Museum with muf architecture / art.

Through a collaborative artwork the projects explores how cities could better serve their communities and enhance our shared culture – opening up a space for exchange and experimentation.

Visitors can picture themselves inhabiting an imaginary fragment of the future city, view animations of future city life as envisaged by today’s young people, and share their own thoughts on urban design.

Peckham Platform is a creative and educational charity based in South London, its Youth Platform is a group of 13 – 19 year olds from Southwark who collaborate with artists and designers to create social art. Currently developing a new venue in Peckham Square, Peckham Platform is staging a number of projects across London in the run up the opening of its new home, due in 2021.
