Stockwood Discovery Centre Luton
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.
