Artists, architects, writers and film makers to explore ideas of rurality.
The University of Westminster hosted a conference and exhibition inviting practitioners from a range of disciplines - artists architects, writers and film makers to explore ideas of rurality through representations, designs and cultural values of new and traditional rural landscapes and settlement forms.
City farm project
The exhibition presented research from two consultations with the locals; the Isis care home and Larkrise Primary school. The intention of the consultation process has been to build awareness and surface a local understanding of city farm. The current proposal is for barn, cafe and fan of fields with animal houses surrounded by concentric layers of pathway and allotments. These are bordered by existing care home, health facilities and sports ground settings up a theatrical relationship with the neighbours.
More information can be found on the project's leaflet.
