Sunday 3 July - 9.30am - 4pm

 

SLIC and the Landscape Institute have been beavering away behind the scenes in conjunction with some fantastic organisations including Living Streets, The Harrow Road PartnershipWestminster Council and Gillespies to develop a unique landscape intervention for the final day of the conference.

The event will be a landscape intervention undertaken by students and local community members with the aim of better integrating and continuing to enhance the site of the Maida Hill Market. The design will draw on ideas from the local community, SLIC and conference attendees.

We're asking everyone attending the conference to think in advance about what 'The Future of Landscape' means to them. Please upload drawings, graphics, designs, quotes and photographs which you think articulate this theme to the Big Landscape 2020 website. We will then incorporate as many of them as possible into the final design for the Maida Hill Market site.
