NOTES: Gibberd's designs for Chrisp Street Market were part of a larger post-war redevelopment scheme for East London. Having been approached to be the lead architect for the Festival of Britain's South Bank, Gibberd declined, and proposed that an area of East London be rebuilt as a 'Live Architecture' exhibition to run alongside the Festival. The post-war Stepney-Poplar area of London had been divided into eleven neighbourhoods, one of which, Lansbury, was given over to Gibberd's proposal.
