Bankside Urban Forest hosts private tour for Patrons of the Architecture Foundation
Patrons and Supporters of The Architecture Foundation, one of Bankside Urban Forest's core partners, enjoyed a private tour of Bankside Urban Forest projects in early July. The walking tour included a number of the project’s notable initiatives including Borough Market's new Market Hall - a new community garden designed by Wayward Plants; the Verdant Viaduct - a new modular green wall within Borough Market; Witherford Watson Mann Architects’ Riverside Accessibility Improvements; Heather and Ivan Morrison's Skirt of the Black Mouth - a new temporary pocket park on the south side of Tate Modern; and Flat Iron Square, a transformational project, reclaiming road space for the public.
The Architecture Foundation is a key partner of the Bankside Urban Forest partnership, and has helped to initiate a number of Forest projects including the Union Street Urban Orchard, the Oikos Project, and Moss Your City. Urban Pioneers, The Architecture Foundation's innovative and successful education programme for engaging young people in architecture and the built environment ,was piloted in Bakside Urban Forest in 2008.
The event was part of the exclusive programme of speical events for Patrons and Benefactors of the Architecture Foundation.
