PUSHAK to create ‘guerrilla’ garden at Architecture Foundation

  • Comment

Norwegian all-female practice PUSHAK is planning to build a ‘guerrilla’ garden at The Architecture Foundation to celebrate the London Festival of Architecture

The garden will feature ‘moss graffiti’ and ‘moss landscaping’, taking inspiration from the pioneering guerrilla gardeners of south London and the proposed Bankside Urban Forest.

Elias Redstone, senior curator at The Architecture Foundation said: ‘PUSHAK’s installation represents the high quality of work being produced by young architects in Norway and shows a keen awareness of local issues.

‘The architects are taking a critical stance about activating our cities, at the same time as creating a welcoming environment for Londoners and visitors to the London Festival of Architecture.’

Camilla Langeland of PUSHAK Architects said: ‘‘Bankside is such a rich area for inspiration – full of culture and history. We hope that our interpretation of the local environment will create a surprising experience of nature in the urban landscape and will inspire visitors to become their own urban gardeners.’

The installation will be open from 19 June to 6 August, at the Architecture Foundation’s indoor exhibition space on Tooley Street (SE1 2TU).
