King's Cross Picnic :: Squire and Partners
London, England

This large scale, indoor/outdoor installation was an attempt by local architecture firm, Squire and Partners, to reclaim and rejuvenate a forgotten area in London known as King's Cross.  The resulting collaboration with landscape designer Jeremy Rye and artist Anna Garforth is this playful picnic area, perfect for the kids(us big kids too :)).  Sod, the main material, acts as art, wraps seating in some places and tickles your toes in the interior of this warehouse space where it acts as throws.  This project is just a friendly reminder that design doesn't always have to be elaborate to be successful as the most important component of any design are the people that occupy it and bring it to life.
