Uni Induction Workshops - Blogs

Today we got sent around Elephant & Castle for a few hours to find something to inspire us. Our chosen picture was this one:

And here's why:

We were fascinated by the out of date, vulgar subway design. We have a theory that the reason why people feel so intimidated in the Elephant & Castle area is because of the hypnotizing maze that has been put there.
The subway is designed for ease of access, and a safe passage around the area, with the designer trying to create a fantasy underground world, however with the violent meandering of the subway corridors, looming low ceilings and ever present special brew drinking tramps, it is more a crime-infested underworld.
