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.
The Machinist Landscape is Mike and Ed’s art/energy/landscape collaboration, with Greg Keeffe and Antonios Papanastasiou.
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.
