Holly Lewis is a partner at We Made That, an architecture and design studio concerned with a broad range of different disciplinary and cultural contexts – with a focus on the public realm. The Unlimited Edition is a super-local newspaper focused purely on High Street 2012; the strand of London that runs from Aldgate to Stratford. To date, issues of the paper have focused on the themes of ‘Survey’, ‘Speculation’ and ‘Proposition’, with guest forewords from David Knight and Eleanor Fawcett, and articles from a range of contributors including Sam Jacob, Wouter Vanstiphout, Publica, The Gentle Author and Tom Hunter. Together they have revealed surprising aspects of the existing and explored enjoyable opportunities for the high street.
