The Moor Lane Community Garden is a new temporary installation by Wayward that aims to increase the provision of green space in Moor Lane at the Barbican. Developed through a co-design approach with the local community, the installation responds to the area’s design and history whilst exploring new and exciting ways to green our streets. Following a series of collaborative workshops, the design takes inspiration from the iconic architecture of the Barbican and London Wall. As well as responding to the need for additional greening in the area, the design is a testbed for elements of a future landscaping proposal for Moor Lane, which will aim to provide more
biodiversity and tree-planting. The installation will stay in place until the permanent scheme for Moor Lane is ready to be implemented, which will be upon completion of the 21 Moorfields development. At this point the planters will be rehomed in other public spaces in the local area creating a long lasting and verdant legacy.
Moor Lane Community Garden was featured in Wallpaper* Magazine's 2021 list of best architectural gardens around the world.
