Lubricity: London As It Could Be Now

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.
