Heather Ackroyd & Dan Harvey

Architecture & Ecologie

Sculpture, photography, architecture, and biology are some of the disciplines that intersect in Ackroyd & Harvey’s work, revealing an intrinsic bias towards process and event and often reflecting urban political ecologies by highlighting the temporal nature of processes of growth and decay in sites of architectural interest as well as contemporary art galleries and museums worldwide. They are acclaimed for large-scale architectural interventions and for their work making complex photographs utilizing the pigment chlorophyll; in 2003 they grew the entire vertical interior space of a disused church in South London, the following year contributed to European Space 9th Sculpture Quadrennial in Riga, Latvia and in 2007 realised their largest temporary living public artwork FlyTower on the exterior of London’s National Theatre. In the summer of 2010 they created a new commission for Trasparenze Art for Renewable Energy, at MACRO Testaccio, Rome and M.A.D.R.E in Naples, Italy. Website:
