Changing Places: Evaluating the socio-cultural impact and experiential change of the new Museum of London in Smithfield
In 2024 the Museum of London (MoL) moves to a new location in West Smithfield. One of Europe’s largest cultural capital projects, the move will radically transform the Smithfield neighbourhood. My PhD research evaluates the impact that culture-led development has on a neighbourhood’s sense of place in the context of sustainable urban development and socially-engaged museum practices. It investigates the socio-spatial impact and experiential change that the MoL move will generate.
