The London Festival of Architecture, the V&A and Discover South Kensington have launched a new competition for an innovative series of installations supporting biodiversity and the recovery of London’s arts and sciences district in South Kensington. This initiative is supported by the Commission.
The project aims to create a welcoming environment that is attractive and engaging for visitors, residents, students and people working in South Kensington, many of whom will be returning to the area after long absences. In the run-up to the UK hosting the COP26 Summit in November, the project will showcase regenerative design, importance of biodiversity in the built environment, and will also inform longer-term thinking about further improvements to the area’s public realm and ecology.
Architects, design practitioners, including students and recent graduates, are invited to submit a design proposal that can demonstrate how plants, greenery and biodiversity can be creatively embedded in Exhibition Road’s public realm, reclaiming space for nature amidst the bustle of the capital.
