Jagonari Educational Resource Centre

Project – London, United Kingdom

The Jagonari Educational Resource Centre in Whitechapel, London was the first large-scale building project where Matrix were the architects. It was designed for women who were mostly from the Bangladeshi community and here Matrix dealt not only with issues concerning women's lives in general, but also those of racism and cultural difference. These issues were explored in the design process, for example certain details such as the steel grilles on the elevation allude to Islamic influences, yet the restrained nature of such an expression is telling, the women users of the centre were afraid of inviting racial abuse.
