En Route: Public Behaviour in the Park
Start Date 13/01/2011
End Date 13/03/2011
Location London 
Country United Kingdom 
Description An alternative exhibition led by Professor Will Alsop OBE with the help of seven students from Ontario College of Art and Design (OCADU) opens on 13th January at the Royal Academy of Arts, London and details how urban public space can be used to benefit local communities.

The bold canvasses use Grange Park, a modest-sized open space close to the OCADU, as an inspiration to explore the theme and suggest innovative approaches to designing city parks. Unlike many urban public spaces, the former private garden has not been developed and has become a vibrant venue for a wide range of recreational and social activities.

The exhibition, which is part of the Royal Academy of Arts’ architecture programme, comprises two large canvasses measuring 8m by 4m. The first is a re-painting by Prof Alsop of a work created by the Canadian students, which is being exhibited at OCADU. The second is an original work by the world-renowned architect and respected artist.
