We are super chuffed with the #eastendgarlands we made for 21 businesses in Globe Town. To explore what makes the businesses in Tower Hamlets unique we asked them 'What are the tools of your trade?' and 'What can't you do your work without?' The responses were as diverse as the businesses we visited and allowed us to transform these collections of objects into a set of unique festive decorations hanging in shop windows including @greentruffle @paradisecycles @cafequarantacinque @rfstorelondon @magpies.loot
@10tacled How many can you find?
We think that our new co-designed lighting scheme on Brick Lane in @towerhamletsNOW fits in wonderfully with the existing illuminated shops. These lights were designed using patterns created by local year 6 students. The patterns and elements were generated using objects that represented skills and practices of the people that have passed through Brick Lane over the years. We are delighted with the outcome & loved working with @mgrubbstudio thank you to everyone involved.
“Life on the street evaporated, and the public realm.........disintegrated”
Very excited to get this project out there.
Profit Driven Development can choke the way we feel and connect in OUR public realm.
🎄Over the past few weeks make:good has been a hive of Christmas activity. One of the seasonal projects we have been working on is the Brick Lane Festive Countdown. 🎄
The designs for the Brick Lane Festive Countdown were created by pupils of Osmani, St Matthias, and Christ Church Primary Schools as part of a Tower Hamlets project exploring the changing cultures and fabric of Brick Lane through silhouettes of objects. Each decoration contains a layer representing a different era of Brick Lane’s past. 🎄
See if you can spot all 25 along Brick Lane! This one can be found @hopscotchldn
So privileged to meet the award winning artist @wolfgangbuttress last week, looking at the public realm and cultural strategy for one of our London based Developments.
He kindly left us with his amazing book ‘UK Pavilion Bee-Hive’, illustrating the momumental installation #thehive @kewgardens.....a sensory and intuitive learning experience of the busy life of bees, how they communicate and their ecological connection with human existence.
It is estimated that one third of the human food supply depends on pollination by insects, birds and bats, most of which is accomplished by bees, whether wild or domesticated.
We can all do our little bit to help....one easy thing we can do is plant bee friendly flowers in our gardens....look to plant open petal flowers as it makes it easier for these little fellas 🐝 to land when collecting pollen. It also attracts them more. We can all make a small difference to help ecology.
Slide across for a flip through of Wolfgangs book, a link below to a virtual walk through of #thehive , or even better, rug up and take a stroll through Kew Gardens to see this amazing artwork in the flesh. Incredible experience and it is now a permanent fixture, as it is so popular.
Working with WYG, LDA Design has been appointed by The City of Edinburgh Council to draw up a long-term vision for George Street, one of the Scottish capital’s principal shopping streets.
The plans will aim to improve accessibility, ensuring George Street meets the needs of residents now and in the future. #ldadesign#publicrealm#landscapearchitecture#landarch
