About

Smallworld Urbanism has been commissioned by The Mosaic Rooms to create a sustainable pop-up permaculture garden highlighting the power of gardening as a positive force for social activism.

In an age when cities are seemingly lost to an endless swathe of development, citizens have used a variety of means of gardening to reclaim urban space in the interests of people and community. Smallworld Urbanism’s pop-up ‘guerrilla’ garden at The Mosaic Rooms employs permaculture principles and aims to engage the local community throughout its development. It includes a layered modular garden, featuring vegetables and fruits, and integrated upcycled seating arrangements made using materials commonly discarded.

There will also be a series of workshops on the principles of sustainable gardening, the importance of the reclamation of space, and to highlight the change that can be brought about by a proactive community.

Smallworld Urbanism is a collective of award winning planners, urban designers, architects and permaculturists. It aims to create a city that works with natural systems, rather than against, and where social reactions and capital can triumph over the gentrification and homogenization of space. Recent projects include a garden and outdoor space and series of workshops in Brixton.
