Charing Cross with the Connection. 2008


Nils Norman was invited by the Serpentine Gallery and the Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields, one of the UK's largest organisations for homeless people, to create a work in response to the charity's location in central London. The result was the book Charing Cross, published in 2008, that brings together drawings, maps and a glossary of terms related to the area, the privatisation of public space, homelessness and urban planning. The book was made in collaboration with the many people (who wished to remain anonomous) who use the Connection as an essential

daily resource.
