Clerkenwell Design Week J+A Cafe

Alexander Mulligan worked in collaboration with Nicholas Alexander to create a site-specific installation for Clerkenwell Design Week.

Situated in the heart of Clerkenwell's creative design district, J+A Café’s outdoor courtyard area would have once been a busy thoroughfare for cattle en-route to Smithfield market.

The designers have responded to this old area of London and the history behind its ancient drovers by designing an architectural structure that illustrates the narrative, movement and energy which would have existed on those grounds many years ago.
