Laure Prouvost, How to Make Money Religiously

An inspiring line-up of landscape architects from Brussels, Paris, Zurich and London showing their recent work and comparing policies, practices and economies around trees in cities.  

Money and Trees is a series of mini lectures addressing the limits to growth. Accompanied by economists and artists we will discuss if we can plant our way out of the environmental crisis. Tree Talks has been conceived by Judith Lösing, director at East and the recipient of the first Architecture Foundation Research Fellowship. This is the second in a series of three talks that form part of London Arboretum, a new programme of residencies, lectures and publications around trees in the capital.


RATTLE will play two short sets (5-10 minutes) as the audience enter and during the interval. Katharine Eira Brown & Theresa Wrigley use just drums and occasional vocalisations to weave percussive vortices combining post-punk, minimalism and experimental rock. Tonight their instruments will be based on timber and metal, the sound of trees and money.

Generous funding is provided by Hub.Brussels and the Diplomatic Representation of Flanders (Embassy of Belgium) to the United Kingdom.

The Architecture Foundation, in association with the Barbican, presents Architecture on Stage – a programme of talks by the world's leading architects.
