TreeTalks 3: Trespassing

Bringing together architects, lawyers, landworkers, landscape architects, feminist collectives, and a queer choir, the Garden Museum and Architecture Foundation collaborated on this event exploring queer nature and the right to green space for all.

The night was framed by an immersive performance by the queer feminist F*Choir, singing and teaching songs to cause a racket, offer kinship, resist and repair. Nestled in the performance was a presentation by Celine Baumann, recipient of a youth award from the European Federation of Landscape Architects, on queer plants, followed by a discussion with lawyer and Director of Make Space for Girls, Imogen Clark and Carole Wright, activist and founder of Blak Outside.

Trespassing was the latest instalment in Judith Lösing’s research fellowship on the London Arboretum, exploring the social and cultural roles of trees. This third Tree Talk concludes a cycle of debates that started with an evening in the Barbican concert hall around local production and care; and continued with a spring discussion about money, growth, and degrowth. This event will centre on gender and protest.

This event has been kindly supported by the Embassy of Switzerland in the United Kingdom.

For over 30 years, the Architecture Foundation has brought together professionals from across the built environment to discuss and act on issues related to design and the built environment. With a renewed focus on the city and the critical intersection of architecture and politics, the Architecture Foundation works to effect meaningful change on policy and practice.
