Learn more about The Moor Lane Community Garden

The Moor Lane Community Garden is a new temporary installation that aims to increase the provision of green space in Moor Lane.

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 project is a collaboration between the City of London Corporation, Culture Mile and Wayward. Moor Lane Community Garden was featured in Wallpaper* Magazine's list of best architectural gardens around the world. You can read the article here.
