London As It Could Be Now

Ed brought together a team of architects, landscape architects, ecologists and engineers for the London As It Could Be Now workshops run by the Architecture Foundation. The team, The Eastern Reach, included George Wade, Ed Wall, Helena Rivera, Alex Malaescu, Kate Priestman and Chris McCarthy. They explored the eastern edge of London along the tidal Thames, an area between where Greater London ends and where the London Transport system begins. The work was presented to a public audience at the beginning of September and is currently on show at the Royal Academy as part of the Richard Rogers exhibition.

DESIGNING NATURE AS INFRASTRUCTURE

In November Ed and Mike Dring presented a paper, Landscape of variance: working the gap between design and nature, at the Designing Nature as Infrastructure conference at the Technical University in Munich (TUM).

The paper describes that in design processes that work with the land there are variances, deviations and gaps. It proposes that these moments expose tensions and resistance between what is conceptualised and what is real to reveal complex landscape conditions and new design potentials.

Following the conference the TUM are planning to publish the essays and papers in an edited book.
