Rocks and Reeds by PARTI
The PARTI City Parklet mixes local landscape with ecological construction and a playful, flamboyant architecture. A whimsical bench and planter are created from standard-sized mesh, infilled with reused construction rubble from demolition works taking place adjacent to the Parklet. Using London’s history as a marshland as inspiration, a collection of tall grasses and wild flowers tackle localised pollution by filtering air from the nearby road and construction site."
Rocks and Reeds was made with the help of Elizabeth Tyler and IOTA Garden.
This parklet is one of three temporary parklets across the City and the result of a design competition organised by the London Festival of Architecture and the City of London Corporation. Each parklet showcases one of London’s brilliant emerging architects and designers, while transforming kerbside areas into a place to rest, relax and admire the City – a public space fit for a festival.
