Power walks is a small project that visits 8 spaces in London associated with protest with law students from Kings College London. The project aims to build a cross disciplinary understanding of space, place and identity from a multitude of perspectives and a diversity of disciplines. The identity of these spaces are informed by a history of alternative practices which become a significant element in the public psyche which does not always transfer to the legal definition of these spaces. Spaces of protest can rarely (if ever) be designed as such, the role develops as a result of a series of factors evolving and intermingling over time. These factors vary in each location, but what connects them is the proximity that these spaces have to key institutions of powerful decision making. These locations are thus part of the public stock through historic and contemporaneous remit.
