To celebrate the launch of the Icon Design Trail 2017 on Saturday, Fluid and the City of London Corporation held a Culture Mile Urban Safari of the Culture Mile area, starting from the Smithfield Rotunda onto Silk Street and Moor Lane, via the Culture Mile’s main spine. Along the journey we took a group of local residents to see Fluid’s Culture Mile installations and a number of the City of London’s temporary arts projects.
Our Culture Mile installations were installed early on Saturday morning in time for the Icon Design Trail 2017 launch and the Culture Mile Urban Safari. Fluid have worked with the City of London Corporation and a great team to turn the project around in a very short time-scale! A massive thank you to Richard Morrell, from Bert and Morrell, for making the beautiful vinyl structures, and to Mtec for constructing the plinths and installing
Steve and Afolabi have returned from Mipim – essentially intact! Here you can see Afolabi, on the right, describing our Wood Green masterplan to Waltham Forest’s director for Investment and Delivery – Jonathan Martin. As well as this scheme we were kept busy explaining the two new commissions we have received from the City Corporation for Area Strategies for some of London’s most outstanding places.
Fluid will again be in attendance at MIPIM this year represented by directors Steve McAdam and Afolabi Spence. A model of our town centre area strategy for Wood Green will be central to Haringey’s stand, and Steve & Afolabi will be at the stand, in the London Pavilion, between events.
