Volunteers and architecture students from University of East London led by local architect, Sarah Bland of Studio Wic have created a pavilion on Hackney City Farm nestled in the wood alongside Haggerston Park.
Built in October 2018, the Woodland Place is a space to reflect in nature, as well as join others in learning and play activities – increasing belonging and healthy living.
The pavilion encourages visitors to explore the woodland and provides a viewing platform over the fields to the animals. The space will be a catalyst for new activities to take place including, the winter solstice, the annual punch festival, music events, woodland foraging courses, yoga and much more. The farm will also be using it as an outside classroom for the farms school.
