Viewing Es Devlin’s Forest For Change — The Global Goals Pavilion, London Design Biennale, Somerset House

Taking over Somerset House this June is the London Design Biennale, a celebration of the world’s most innovative designers, curators and design institutes.

The centrepiece is Forest for Change—The Global Goals Pavilion, an immersive installation featuring 400 trees conceived by artistic director Es Devlin in partnership with Project Everyone.

Filling the historic courtyard, it aims to spark debate on ‘the pathway of action to a better and fairer future’ and drive awareness to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals can be explored at the centre of the clearing, where they are succinctly explained on colourful mirrored pillars.

‘It’s my hope that when you get to the centre, you’re able to approach these really complex global problems without feeling so daunted or overwhelmed,’ says Devlin.

There’s already much hype around Devlin’s pop-up wood, so check it out and join the conversation.
