We are absolutely delighted to be invited to participate in the Museum’s Autumn lecture series on collaboration in landscape design. The lecture series also includes designers such as two of our own heroes, Christopher Bradley-Hole and Tom Stuart-Smith, so we feel particularly thrilled to be asked. We’d love to see some friendly faces in the audience, so if you are in London that evening (and not trick or treating!), more details can be found here:
If you haven’t visited the Garden Museum, it’s a wonderful space, situated next door to Lambeth Palace on the bank of the Thames looking across to Parliament. It was the first museum in the world dedicated to the history of gardening and it explores and celebrates British gardens and gardening through its collection, temporary exhibitions, events and own gardens. Originally the abandoned church of St Mary’s at Lambeth, it is the burial place of John Tradescant (c 1570 – 1638), the first great gardener and plant-hunter in British history. In 2017, the redeveloped Museum reopened after a two year closure for the construction of more galleries and education/event spaces in an award-winning and very beautiful design by Dow Jones Architects.
