Description: The Valley Project is an exploration of Patrick Geddes valley section as a tool for analysis and speculation of urban landscapes. Extending beyond what Geddes termed ‘natural occupations’, the project proposes that the framework of the valley section be adapted to analyse other relations with land, from historic forms to future urbanisations.
Description: Lubricity is a proposal for future London – in the tidal Thames Estuary, where the limits of London are reached and the Greenbelt, transportation infrastructures, and new industries intersect. The design recognises a fluid landscape and aims to slow the need to commute from this urban margin while simultaneously facilitating movement of migrating birds, energy fields, and new public forms.
Description: The Roaming Forest is an urban intervention exploring the making and remaking of public spaces through the hands of individuals, groups of people, and the city government. Following the life-cycle of a nursery-grown tree, the project begins with saplings planted in vacant lots before they transplanted to mobile containers and moved around the city to create small public spaces. As the containers deteriorate the trees are planted where they stand.
