Imagine... is a concept for a public garden based on the fringe of the City of London. Created by the people who live and work locally, it would be as a space for contemplation, reflection and relaxation, in the midst of an increasingly busy urban area.
We wish to create a peaceful setting, providing as much green, color and movement as possible in a dense, urban, predominantly grey environment. The garden would become a source of learning, practical and playful opportunities for local residents.
Imagine will endeavor to be exemplary, inclusive and ambitious - open to all those who want to contribute love, care and time - to create a public space that will become joy for those who experience it and pride for those who made it.
The project would have exhibitions, a growing lab, a vertical garden, talks/seminars/workshops and a beautiful garden to rest and relax in, a place to meet & greet.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
- The area of Bethnal Green, Bishopsgate Goodsyard, is on the verge of being redeveloped and the community is keen to see a green space, which will be accessible to them within the coming developments.
- LB Tower Hamlets have highlighted the need for a green space at the proposed location within the next few years. From their recent consultation on open and green spaces, the local council found that the majority of those consulted highlighted a space for relaxation as their n.1 choice for using an open and green space. The priority for the Borough is also to create space promoting bio-diversity.
- The area has a strong mixed community, with Brick Lane earning an international reputation. A garden inspired from the great tradition of garden design would be a great way to join up the various communities co-existing in the area, promote integration and sharing of skills and resources.
