The built environment around us plays an important role in defining who we are, and how we perceive ourselves. The experience of familiar buildings, landmarks, and public spaces is key to the way that we build relationships with others, especially our families, and also informs the way that we think about the past, present, and future: the continuity of their existence can become very import to our sense of identity and community.

One of the goals of our Trafalgar Square installation is to draw attention to these important relationships between people and places and to explore how they are relevant to art, culture, literature, and science.

As part of the event, we shall be inviting people to contribute to a giant photowall with their photographs or pictures of places that are important to them. This wall will travel and grow with the project as it moves around the world.

To participate, simply bring a printed picture or photograph of a place that is important to you to Square with a few words about where it is and, if you like, its meaning to you.

If you are a teacher and would like to contribute to the wall as part of a class visit, please contact for further details and an accompanying lesson plan.
