Silvio Palladino

Through a partnership between East Street Arts and The Goodwin Development Trust, Silvio Palladino, a London based artist, took up residence in the Code 5: Live/Work project on the Thornton Estate in November 2014.

School installations highlighting rising sea levels and a sustainable shopping bag project were some of the ways Silvio engaged with residents on the issues of climate change.

Through working closely with the community Silvio identified the need for an outdoor space for residents. Historic research & community consultation led to the design of a community garden equipped with a pizza oven, tree house and open air stage.

Silvio said, “The creation of the garden was a great opportunity to translate the needs expressed by the community into a natural public space that will link the new Code5 housing and the existing community allotment.”
