Stockwood Discovery Centre Luton

So what?

It is a place with lovely gardens and galleries, which tell us a stories about real people behind the collections, exploring the history of the region from prehistoric times to the modern day.

I choose to visit this place according with my new brief, “Street Space”. It is part of my research about Luton History.



This is an interacting space which I found it interesting according with “Street Space” brief.

I was impressed about the natural landscape and the models. I saw a lovely Wagon collection and I will try to introduce this kind of model in my work. As well I am thinking to use some interaction model for “Street Space” project.
