The Lake, Union Street
Catch the last of the summer sunshine at The LAKE, a new public space at 100 Union Street is a project created by EXYZT: a collective of architects, carpenters, cooks, graphic designers, photographers, gardeners and more, who take unused urban land, inhabit it, and open it up to the public and local community.
Located in the heart of Bankside Urban Forest, The LAKE is the fifth in a series of temporary projects which have taken place on the same site on Union Street since 2008: EXYZT’s Southwark Lido in 2008 and the reUNION in 2012; and Wayward Plants’ Urban Orchard in 2010 and Urban Physic Garden in 2011.
Open every day except for Monday, from 12 noon to 8pm, at 100 Union Street, SE1 0NL, The LAKE is a place to go on holiday in your own city, in your own neighbourhood. It’s a place to see old faces and meet new ones: neighbours, Londoners, visitors from around Britain and abroad.
Throughout September the LAKE will host a number of events and debates about the purpose and design of our buildings and spaces. Visit our Events pages for more information.
