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 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.
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.
The model for the Machinist Landscape design proposal is featured in the Royal Academy Summer Show 2013.
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.
