London Festival of Architecture 2019

Posted 30.06.2019

A bespoke Corten Steel and GRP planter and bench set were commissioned from IOTA for Rocks and Reeds – a City Parklet designed by PARTI for the London Festival of Architecture 2019.

The PARTI City Parklet mixes local landscape with ecological construction and a playful, flamboyant architecture. A whimsical planter and bench are created from ‘ever-lasting’ and zero maintenance Corten Steel, 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.
