An urban garden and community space known as Skip Garden has been opened in King’s Cross in collaboration with The Bartlett School of Architecture

The space, which is run by Global Generation, unveils seven new structures in the heart of the King’s Cross redevelopment. Conceived to be movable during the years of development in the area, the garden is now open to the public, with the new buildings acting as event spaces for learning and entertainment.

The collaboration enabled undergraduate students to experience project management and design first-hand, and also allowed exposure to a real client and a real client brief. Embracing sustainable construction techniques, the students have incorporated elements such as reclaimed materials to help with energy-efficiency. Skip Garden includes a host of facilities for public use such as a kitchen and dining area and growing space that includes London's first large-scale reed bed water filtration scape
