The Laban dance school is located in Deptford, an industrial district to the southwest of London. The design of the garden in front of the building by Herzog and De Meuron reflects the interior of the building, which is characterized by ramps. The way to the main entrance of the building leads in a slightly zigzag course through a hilly landscape created by bending and folding. The sloping lawns and geometric hills form a lively landscape. As in a natural landscape, chains of hills and dales form extremely dissimilar situations that can be variously used, for example the lawn steps as a performance room in the sense of an amphitheatre. The modeling of the ground also made it possible to dispose of the existing, contaminated soil on the building side of the site at a reasonable cost. The decision to refrain from planting trees was based on ecological considerations: a rare bird, the black redstart, would otherwise have been hunted by birds of prey lurking in the trees.

How to get there? The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) offers a frequent service to Cutty Sark station which is a few minutes walk from Laban. The DLR joins to the London Underground at Monument / Bank (Central, Circle and District Lines), Shadwell (East London Line), Canary Wharf (Jubilee Line) and Stratford (Central Line). At Cutty Sark turn right out of the station and right again on to Creek Road. Take the second left after the bridge, Creekside and Laban is a on your left. (10 min walk)
