Australian architect wins in London

London, UK - July 2012



As part of the London Festival of Architecture, Australian Architect Andrew Burns and British landscape designer, Sarah Eberle were appointed by The Architecture Foundation, Team London Bridge and Southwark Council to transform a currently under used cut through between Magdalen and Bermondsey Streets in London SE1.

Australia Unlimited proudly supported the public lecture that launched the space on Sunday 24 June 2012 as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2012. Andrew Burns and Sarah Eberle spoke of their inspiration behind their design concept and this was then followed by the official opening. The project aims to raise awareness of this forgotten piece of Southwark and to contribute to the longer-term social and economic improvement of the area.

It looks to actively encourage community participation asking local businesses and residents to contribute potted plants to the garden allowing it to grow and evolve, taking on a life of its own past its official launch this summer.
