Description: Ways of being seen explores landscapes held in tension by a 100ft monument in the Scottish Northeast Highlands. The monument to the First Duke of Sutherland commemorates a man who presided over one of the most contested Highland Clearances of the nineteenth century. During this time populations were forcibly displaced to make way for sheep farming and new infrastructures were inscribed across the landscape.
The mappings and model for the Ways of being seen project were exhibited in The Landscapists Exhibition.
The Landscapists exhibition includes inventive landscape works by leading artists, designers, and researchers, including: Harry Bix; Luis Callejas and Charlotte Hansson; Emma Colthurst; James Corner; Teddy Cruz and Fonna Forman; Drawing Architecture Studio; Larissa Fassler; Alexis Liu; Tiago Torres‐Campos; SCAPE; and Ed Wall.
Description: The Landscapists explores expanding fields of landscape. It began as a commission for Ed Wall to guest-edit an issue of Architectural Design (Wiley 2020) and was developed further through a series of international seminars and a public exhibition. The Landscapists involved almost 100 leading international landscape researchers, designers, artists, and scientists who have shared their unique landscape practices.
Five times over is an exhibition of student work from the Advanced Landscape Studio at the University of Greenwich, curated by Ed Wall. It presents a selection of student design projects from 2013 – 2018, some award-winning works that have been published and exhibited internationally
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.
Description: Lubricity was one of five proposals commissioned by the Architecture Foundation and Royal Academy to explore London As It Could Be Now: New Visions for the Thames. Responding to a project and exhibition of works by the architect Richard Rogers titled London As It Could Be, Lubricity imagines a contrasting future that questions future work, architectural forms, and urban centres.
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.
