Heterotopia: A zero carbon art garden in the Thames Gateway
Part of the New Suburban Civic series of lunchtime talks
The Arts Space of the Future should be a place in which to question our everyday reality, a place once removed from contemporary metropolitan lifestyles, where other lives can be imagined and enacted. Heterotopia is a garden that sustains buildings and imaginations. Newly planted forests are coppiced to provide fuel to run new arts facilities. This in turn creates a changing network of forest clearings in which to host temporary arts events to fire the imagination.
