TITLE: Shoreditch Festival Pavilion
PROJECT: Living pavilion for festival
PLACE: London, UK
WHEN: 01 July 2009
CLIENT: Shoreditch Trust
A living green pavilion with biological membranes made from loops specially designed for the Shoreditch Festival 2009.
Commissioned and in collaboration with the Shoreditch Trust the award winning Festival hosted the first living green pavilion fabricated by local volunteers.
Food producing climbing plants started their life growing around a woven looped structure to create a temporary space and shelter. The festival space was later disassembled and planted in various urban sites such as local housing estates, restaurants and vacant lots as more permanent vertical gardens.
