These are some of the results from a 7 day workshop of AA Landscape Urbanism students in Tottenham Hale, London, working on visions for the entire regeneration area and its connections to the Lea Valley and the Walthamstow reservoirs. The workshop was collaboration with Arup and the Haringey Council. Special Thanks to all the AALU cohort and Ignacio Lopez Buson and Costanza Maricardo for the help with the work. Equally we would like to thank Elad Eisenstein and Malcolm Smith from Arup for their comments and collaboration on the overall organisation of the event.
The lecture on 6 March 2013 presented the work of Groundlab, an emerging international practice of Landscape Urbanism. Groundlab was founded in 2008 and has been engaged in a number of large scale urban projects exploring Landscape Urbanism as a new mode of practice and as an alternative model to tackle the challenges posed by contemporary urban conditions.
