Built by the students from the Bartlet School of Architecture with the local community , the current form of the skip garden is a collage of construction materials from the surrounding sites fixed together by all sorts of methods of construction.
This is an experimental cluster of constructions where space flows between shelter and openess in a seamless manner.
The project, which was relocated in spring in order to provide a better relationship with adjacent Kings Cross pond, was conceived as a moveable green oasis in the middle of the Kings Cross redevelopment and it has become a substantial community project where young and old come together in partnership.
All types of structures acomodate vegetables and flowers which serve as ingredients in the Skip Garden Kitchen; but they also provide a venue to those looking to host a magical garden party.
The garden is run by Global Generation, a charity dedicated to bring a slow paced life to inner city dwellers by reinforcing an understanding of our relationship with nature and each other.
