Muf architecture/art were commissioned by Design for London to produce a "cultural map" of the Hackney Wick area which feeds in to the overall masterplan for the area. Completed in July 2009 the document aims to identify the creative businesses and studios in the area in order to produce a snapshot of what currently goes in Hackney Wick. At the same time it attempts to offer an idea of what has already been lost from the Wick in the enterprises which have moved on in anticipation of changes to come.
