• Innovative spiral escalators transporting visitors down to the exhibition galleries in a vast excavated underground chamber;
• Flexible spaces that can serve as a new meeting place for London and a centre for events and debate;
• A new sunken garden and green spaces to provide pockets of tranquillity.

Alexandra Road Park, officially reopened to the public at the beginning of September 2015.

J & L Gibbons Landscape Architects and Erect Architecture were appointed as the designers for the park restoration, and Around the Block project-managed the entire process on behalf of Camden. Stakeholder liaison has been key throughout the project with the project team working very closely with the Tenants and Residents Association and the Friends of Alexandra Road Park. The ability to review proposals with the original landscape architect, Janet Jack, was also a unique opportunity.

The project received £1.5m funding through the joint Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery funded ‘Parks for People’ programme in 2013.

J & L Gibbons presented at the launch of the Van Alen Institute Ecologies of Addiction programme on the 28th of January in New York. This interdisciplinary research initiative into the complex relationship between addictive behaviors and the physical environment of the city is part of a first phase collaboration between the Van Alen and Imperial College’s Sustainable Society Network (SSN+). Our research team, a collaboration with King’s College and NOMAD, has been selected to investigate how a person’s vulnerability to addiction may be impacted by his or her environment

Phytology Human Nature Walk

As part of the 'Human-Nature' talks programme J & L Gibbons were asked by Phytology to guide a series of walks around various areas of London.

The 'walking talk' explored the micro and macro green infrastructure of London. Participants throughout the walk zoomed in on seemingly unremarkable ecological patchiness and set that in the context of strategic policy that secures nature as a vital component of the city environment, its liveability and economy.
