Make-Room at the V&A

On Friday 28th March 2014, Make-Room joined other creative groups from Tottenham at the Tottenham Takeover at the V&A as part of their Friday Late programme.


Our installation at the V&A displayed a series of Nolli maps and an animated walk through Tottenham with the aim of exploring ideas around space and place. The Nolli maps highlight the physical and spatial structures of the area and reveal new perspectives of Tottenham.


The city, thus conceived as an enormous mass that has been carved away to create outdoor rooms is rendered intelligible and vivid through this simple graphic convention

A series of Tottenham Pocket Maps were available to take away on the night. The Pocket Maps were cross sections through Tottenham; North to South, East to West, North-West to South-East and North-East to South-West.
