Ed presented a research paper last week at the Future of Places conference in Stockholm. The paper which explores the uneven production of public spaces in London is part of Ed’s PhD research at the London School of Economics, Cities Programme.
Revising Green Infrastructure was published at the end of 2014. Ed Wall and Mike Dring co-wrote a chapter for the book which has evolved from the Designing Nature as Infrastructure conference at the Technical University in Munich (TUM).
