5am Upper Street

How does our built environment create new questions about our world today? Whether demolished or in construction, Pauline Blanchet explores cities, neighbourhoods, and buildings. Influenced by London’s changing streets due to gentrification, in each episode, she dives into a question about the cities in the midst of change. From Modernist Estates to the 2024 Paris Games, she explores the social impact on communities at the heart of cities. In every third episode, the Urban Activist online magazine will also come on board to dive head-first into a city’s activist communities.
