Lendlease commissions Produce UK to create the International Quarter London’s inaugural public activation programme

Produce UK has partnered with Lendlease to develop and deliver a series of creative experiential events to celebrate the launch of the new International Quarter London in Stratford.

For the programme, Produce has created a series of activations hosted around some of IQL’s high quality public spaces, as well as two large-scale temporary public spaces, including a bespoke pop up cafe / event space, a surprising pop up garden and a series of inspirational talks and workshops, the focus of the programme is to promote wellbeing, innovation, creativity and local connections.

Calico, June-October 

Endeavour Square will be the heart of IQL’s public realm. To celebrate it, Produce UK has designed a temporary multi-use pop up space that will work as a cafe / bar and event space. With unique design, clean lines and and organic feel, the space will welcome employees and local residents who are looking for a place to socialise, catch up on emails or simply have a nice cup of locally sourced artisanal coffee. The new public amenity will be open for the public from June to October 2018.

Summer Lawn, June-October 

The IQL take on a pop up summer garden: a design-led temporary outdoor space for the benefit of occupiers, local residents and visitors. An explosion of colour will take over The Spark to create a visually striking and pleasant experience. A supporting programme of enlivenments will stimulate the creative use of the space and welcome local residents, including gardening days in partnership with Our Park Life.

IQL Total, June-October 

Curated wellness programme for workers at IQL, including lunchtime talks, fitness and hands-on workshops. The weekday programme will focus on wellbeing in the workplace, health, science, performance and self-improvement.

IQL Weekends, June-October 

IQL Weekends is IQL’s community-focussed weekend programme of fun and educational events including community fitness and family-friendly workshops. This public programme will invite visitors and local residents to spend quality time at IQL.
