A Day at the Square

The Day at the Square event took place last week and went very well.
From the great photographic portraits of Eileen Perrier all the way to the Parkour demonstrations and the film screeenings the day was really busy and the rain almost absent. The day was really useful in informing the development of the work for this place.

Here are a few snaps of the day:

Worcester Orchard

The works for The Worcester Orchard project we designed for Worcester University have now started. It was great to go on a site visit last week to see things take shape.

The project was developed with BCA Landscape architects (who came up number 3 in the list of Top 10 Landscape Architects in Urban Realm magazine this summer!)

A day at the square

We're finishing the last details on an event we're setting up in Finsbury Park (London) on Saturday.
A day in the Square will take place on a purpose built platform at the heart of the main public space in Six Acres. The platform will be in place for just 12 hours, hosting a changing program of free events: talks, screenings, demonstrations, food... The event will directly inform the permanent work we'll be designing for this place, activating the space and engaging people, testing possibilities.

A day in the Square serves as an introduction, a discussion, an experiment, a learning exercise to understand uses and users, and sets the tone of the permanent works to come. This day-long event will celebrate the future of the space and become a pre launch for this public space.

This event is part of The Secret garden Project by Up Projects commissioned by One Housing Group in partnership with Islington Council
