Launches as part of London Design Festival 2020
Planted, the first contemporary design show aimed at reconnecting cities with nature, will make its eagerly anticipated physical debut as part of London Design Festival alongside an exciting online trailer for next year's main event.
Staged on a purpose-built outdoor studio and set amongst the trees on Granary Square, Planted Unplugged will involve a three-part talks series filmed in real-time in Kings Cross on Friday 18 September.
The studio created by Biotecture Ltd, will play host to interviews and talks led by biophilic design expert Oliver Heath and former Sunday Times journalist Sam Peters, exploring how sustainability, food production, architecture, nature and design can combine to create cleaner, greener, healthier urban spaces.
Following hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed Planted Unearthed series, Planted Unplugged will focus on three specific topics; carbon capture, the right to repair and blooming buildings.
With a high-calibre line-up of speakers including Sebastian Cox, Andrew Waugh, Duncan Baker-Brown, Richard Sabin, Oksana Bondar and Heath himself, Planted Unplugged is set to lead LDF’s conversation on some of the most important topics of our time.
Planted Unplugged will be free to access online via registration at www.planted-cities.co.uk during the festival.
