The programme for this year’s London Open House Weekend, on 19 and 20 September, has been published, with a landscape element supported by the Landscape Institute.
In the run up to London Open House, Landscape Institute President Noel Farrer will be taking part in this year’s Open-City debate. This will take place on 9th September and the topic will be: “London’s pollution is ruining our lives. Can we build a cleaner city?”
Confirmed speakers are:

  • Noel Farrer, President, Landscape Institute
  • Roland Grzybek, Chair, ICE London (and Water and Environment Management Framework Manager, CH2M HILL)
  • Jenny Bates, Friends of the Earth, London
  • Frank Kelly, Professor of Environmental Health and Director, Environmental Research Group, King’s College London
More information is available here and you can enter the ballot now to join in the debate.

In terms of the landscape showcase at Open House London, the programme says the emphasis is on the success that can be achieved by working with what is already there. It divides its highlights into interventions and large-scale transformations.

Under large-scale transformations, there are two highlighted events:
King’s Cross Public Realm – a guided walk by Dominic Cole exploring the regeneration and landscape design of King’s Cross Regent’s Quarter, Kings Place, canal, Central St Martin’s and St Pancras Old Church. Book here.

Walk in the Olympic Park: ‘Function and Beauty in Landscape’– walk the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park looking at the design approaches which have shaped this new park for London. Exploring the South Park and its post-Games landscape with new approaches to green space design, key to making cities healthy and liveable for the future. Book here.

Interventions will be demonstrated at:
Ladywell Fields – tour of a river restoration project within an existing park with new river channels, backwaters, pools and greatly improved habitats. An enhanced footpath network with new lighting, boardwalks and park furniture provides new links to surrounding areas connecting the local community to the parkland.

‘Many Ways to Sit – The Social Dynamics of Gordon Square – a tour and talk looking at the problems and potential of seating in public places, focusing on Gordon Square, Woolwich.
