Fruit City is being exhibited at the UNION ST URBAN ORCHARD as part of the LONDON FESTIVAL OF ARCHITECTURE

During the London Festival of Architecture and beyond, the site of 100 Union Street in SE1 will be transformed into an urban orchard and community garden.

Designed by Heather Ring of the Wayward Plant Registry and built with the help of Bankside Open Spaces Trust and an array of other helpful volunteers the garden will regenerate a disused site in Bankside and create a place for exchange between local residents and visitors to the Festival.

During the Bankside Urban Forest focus weekend on 3-4 July the Wayward Plant Registry will run a plant adoption and exchange programme, there will be a LivingARK and as well as series of workshops and discussions focusing on biodiversity and urban food growing.

In September the garden will be dismantled and all the trees will be given to local estates and other community gardens to remain as a lasting legacy of the 2010 London Festival of Architecture.

This project is delivered in collaboration between The Architecture Foundation, Bankside Open Spaces Trust, ProjectARKs and the Wayward Plant Registry.

Thanks to Claire Healy, Moira Lascelles, Heather Ring, Ed and the crew for all their hard work
