What We Do

Wayward is a London-based landscape, art and architecture practice – an award-winning collective of designers, artists and urban growers. Since 2006, Wayward has pioneered new methodologies in the creative use of underutilised land and meanwhile spaces, transforming derelict sites into large-scale, design-driven spaces that engage local communities and inspire international audiences.

Our critically-acclaimed projects include theUnion Street Urban Orchard, commissioned by the Architecture Foundation for the London Festival of Architecture, theHelsinki Plant Tram, created for the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 and shortlisted for the D&AD Yellow Pencil, and theQueen’s Walk Window Gardens, a micro-city of urban allotments for the Southbank Centre, visited by an estimated 8 million people.

For the past decade, Wayward has designed and tested innovative new social, cultural and economic models for sustainable green spaces. This includes Farmopolis, an ambitious new urban farming concept that brings together food, farming, arts and culture which had its first experimental testbed on a jetty outpost at the Greenwich Peninsula in 2016. TheUrban Physic Garden, which started as a pop-up garden of medicinal plants built by over 200 volunteers in 2011, has since toured internationally and become an international 501c3 non-profit promoting the healing power of plants and food as medicine.

Wayward takes a unique approach to landscape through the creation of narrative environments. Our projects express stories that connect people through nature, creating vibrant places which are productive, meaningful and imaginative. Our projects are platforms for collaboration, experimentation and creative innovation. Our work goes beyond design to extend to creative direction and production, project delivery, strategic partnership building, community engagement, original programming, curation and live events.
