Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
TREExOFFICE is a project by Australian American artist Natalie Jeremijenko in collaboration with artists Shuster + Moseley, architects Tate Harmer and briefing architects Gensler. In the canopy of an urban tree, TREExOFFICE offers an alternative to the conventional working space and economy. Acting as its own landlord, the tree offers sanctuary, a power supply, and free wifi amongst the bustle of East London. The workspace is conceptually owned and operated by the tree itself, with revenues made being invested into Hackney’s parks, with bookings for co-working or group use available from June to December 2015. TREExOFFICE was commissioned by Artsadmin as part of the 2 Degrees Festival, and Groundwork London as part of the innovative Park Hack project. Park Hack is a Rethinking Parks project led by Groundwork London in partnership with The London Borough of Hackney and with support from Gensler. The Rethinking Parks Programme is funded by Nesta, Big Lottery Fund England and Heritage Lottery Fund.
1 - 5 June free entry but donations to the tree are invited. From 8th June paid booking available via project website
