LDA Design’s principal landscape architect Cannon Ivers will be leading the walk on Saturday (20 September 2008).

The walk will concentrate on two urban spaces, Potter’s Field and More London, which features the modern Greater London Authority building.

LDA Design partner Neil Mattinson said the walk would be a chance to see the capital’s public spaces in a new light.

“In recent years London has redefined its relationship with the River Thames,” said Neil Mattinson.

“As a result of the decline in commercial activity and a resultant cleaner river, the South Bank has developed some wonderful public places and become a major London attraction for visitors and residents alike.

“Our Open House walk will allow the public to gain a view of these spaces with a professional landscape architect who may give them a different understanding of the places often taken for granted.”

The LDA Design one-hour walking tour begins at 11am and must be booked in advance.
