After Grenfell
Grenfell Tower Fire tragedy 14th June 2017. Started by a fridge/freezer on 4th floor allegedly starting the blaze & accelerated by the flammable cladding on the exterior of the building that had been fitted incorrectly leaving a gap between the cladding the the exterior, creating a chimney effect accelerating the fire to have consumed the tower within half an hour. 80 deaths reported to date. 255 survivors.
Phoenix Project is a library, chess & social area that arose after the fire to help the community heal.
The area has lived in the shadow of the black tower ever since. Ongoing project.
