erect in conversation with Janet Jack at RIBA event 'Brutalist Playground'
Designed by landscape architect Janet Jack in the 1970s, the park and playgrounds at the Alexandra and Ainsworth Estate in North London were envisaged as a ‘playable landscape’, integral to the wider planning of the estate. As the first twentieth-century landscape to be listed in the UK, the park is currently undergoing refurbishment by J&L Gibbons in collaboration with Erect as playspace designers.
Susanne Tutsch will be joined in conversation with Janet Jack discussing the original plans for the Alexandra Road Park, current redevelopments and the different climates for designing for children’s play.

We are very excited that Janet will be able to join us - this will be a rare event!

The talk A ‘Playable Landscape’: erect architecture in conversation with Janet Jack will be on July 28th, 2015 at 6pm at RIBA Portland Place. For more details and booking click here.
