A fantastical Future Forest with a walk-in breathable aromatic Fruit Cloud…no this isn’t a description of a live-action remake of Charlie and Chocolate Factory but the latest mind-boggling installation from Bompas & Parr. Arriving at Westfield London on the 15th August the installation will boast a selection of immersive activities including educational events like a mini exhibition showcasing plants that create electricity, the magic of spider silk, and a historic tree circus alongside artefacts, artworks and anecdotes about forests and nature.
Once you’ve blown your mind with all of that wackiness, get your heart pumping with UK’s first shopping centre zip-line found exclusively at Westfield London. The exhilarating 40-metre descent begins at the top of a purpose-built treehouse where adventurous adults and children are sure to be found as it also gives a unique bird’s eye view of inside the shopping centre.
The Future Forest may sound like a Willy Wonka fantasy but the idea was to design something that would inspire guests to consider the environment and the outdoors as it explores the relationship between humans and nature – and the best part is it is all free!
Future Forest is open from the 15th – 28th August.
