Bird houses by London Fieldworks for London’s Secret Garden Project.

The Secret Garden Project is a new programme of temporary commissions and pop up art events by young and established artists that will create a trail of London’s secret gardens, lesser known green spaces, and urban corners. The project aims to bring high quality art projects and events to London’s public realm; raise awareness of the ecological and cultural value of urban green space; encourage an understanding and engagement with ecology and biodiversity, create opportunities for community engagement and collaboration and encourage innovation.

A Venice Exhibit Brainstorms New Life for Old Gondola Posts

September 22, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Entries by David Chipperfield and Paola Navone for the “Tra le Briccole di Venezia” (“Among the posts in Venice”) exhibition that explores ways to recycle the massive oak posts used to dock gondolas.

The so called “briccole”, the posts in chestnut oak on which Venice is built, are used for docking gondolas and as beacons. They are at least ten meters (32.8 feet) high and once driven into the lagoon, they have an average life not longer than 5-10 years. Their section affected by tide rise and fall becomes the natural home for microorganisms as well as sea flora and fauna, but once corroded, they are completely replaced.
