Lubricity is a utopian speculation for London developed over several workshops with Helena Rivera, George Wade, Alex Malaescu, Kate Priestman and Ed Wall. The team formed was selected by the Architecture Foundation and the project was presented and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 2013, London as it could be now.
A Landscape Conversation: Design, Representation, Process is a paper co-written by Tim Waterman and Ed Wall, recently published in the latest Critical Landscapes issue of Urban. The paper was first presented in 2010 at the Emerging Landscapes conference at the University of Westminster.

The Machinist Landscape is Mike and Ed’s art/energy/landscape collaboration, with Greg Keeffe and Antonios Papanastasiou.
Ed and Helena, from A Small Studio, collaborated to create an installation for this years A Few More Friends exhibition organised by ALL Design. Your Title Deed presented a series of stolen things with an illustrated title deed that re-appropriated what had previously been taken from us.
Ed’s project studio has work featured in the 7th edition of the International Festival of Architecture. eme3, the think tank that initiate, host and curate the festival, are keen to present ‘bottom-up’ projects that work between architectural space and society.
In December, Ed led a team, with Christian Gabriel of Thomas Balsley Associates, in the final stage of the Des Moines Water Works Park Competition.
We put together an ambitous proposal that was only made possible by a fantastic London/US based team. Thank you to Christian Gabriel (Thomas Balsley Associates), Brett Douglas (Genus), Fred Schwartz (Frederic Schwartz Architects), Steven Handel (Green Shield Ecology), John Paul Goedken (JP-SE), Mark Land (Snyder Associates), Bryan Bertrand (CPMI), Tim Marshall (ETM), Helena Rivera (A Small Studio), and Matt Parker and Leo Thom (Room 60). Finally, without the design critique and stunning drawings of Aaron Carpenter, Harry Bix, and Joe Sanders this proposal would have only been a jumble of ideas. Thank you.
DOM publishers have recently released their book, “Infrastructural Urbanism. Addressing the In – Between”. This book features an essay by Ed exploring the relationship between large infrastructure and the public realm of the city.
