Design contest launched for City 'parklets'

Fresh Air Square, Tooley Street

Competition will lead to creation of tiny public spaces

A design competition for a string of miniature landscaped spaces – or parklets – has been announced by the London Festival of Architecture and the City corporation.

The winning schemes will turn kerbside spots across the Square Mile into places of rest during this summer’s festival (LFA).

Each parklet will have a £6,500 budget and winners will receive an honorarium of £250.
