Questions about McAslan Architects' Agreement with Haringey
Image by Alan Stanton 10 June 2014. This empty shop at 451/3 High Road - at the corner of Forster Road - was due to become a "Design Studio".âOr perhaps a "design hub"?âOr perhaps a "regeneration showcase"?âOr maybe we'll enjoy a "community facility"?âEach of these phrases has been used. According to Haringey Council's website the architects' practice John McAslan + Partners have: â". . . signed an agreement with Haringey Council on 21 October 2013 to transform an empty shop into a design hub offering work placements and training to local people". â"The N17 Design Studio will work with the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CHENEL) in a pilot project to give local students the chance to learn key skills in apprenticeships." â"Haringey Council will take a five-year lease on the building and refurbish it to create a community facility in the centre of the High Road that will showcase regeneration plans and engage with local people on the future of Tottenham." The Council's website prominently featured a quote from Haringey Council Leader Claire Kober.âIt was her usual upbeat but empty burble. â"It's fantastic to be welcoming McAslan to Tottenham. Their enthusiasm for the area is testament to its potential to be one of Londonâs centres for creativity, quality and opportunity. âEquipping our young people with the skills they need to fulfil their potential is at the centre of our regeneration plans for Tottenham, and this studio will help raise aspirations as much as transform an empty building. âCreating new business spaces will help us secure a revitalised High Road that supports our long-term ambition that everyone in Tottenham has the opportunity to succeed and thrive." John McAslan + Partners' website described the "agreement" as a "Memorandum of Understanding" which may or may not be the same thing.âIt included the same anodyne quote from Cllr Kober. John McAslan is quoted saying that: ââThe new design studio will help generate employment and regeneration, creating a forum in Tottenham for the education and future of young people through structured apprenticeshipsâ. CHENEL the third body signing-up to the deal, was represented by Jane OâNeill, Interim Principal and Chief Executive. She said: ââThe College is very pleased to partner Haringey Council and JMP to develop the N17 Design Studio, playing such a key role in improving the career choices and achievement of local people. By offering essential training and excellent opportunities for work experience, together we will raise Tottenhamâs profile throughout London as a highly desirable location in which to study, work and live.â So nothing much to get your teeth into about what is actually going to happen and be achieved in the hub/studio/ community facility/regeneration showcase. But there were photos and lots of smiles on McAslan's website.
