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).
Ed’s Park Works proposal for the Des Moines Water Works Park was selected to be exhibited at the recent Rethinking the Urban Landscape exhibition at the Building Centre in London.
Ed presented at the Future Cities 3 conference at the University of Greenwich, organised by the AVATAR research group.
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 project titled Lubricity 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.
In September Ed was invited to give a presentation of his design practice work at the International Summer School of the Politecnico di Milano.
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.
