Garden Museum: Garden City to Green City Events

Thursday 29th March 6pm doors open, event begins at 6.30pm

In the final week of our exhibition From Garden City to Green Cities architects, landscape architects and an historian celebrate five visionary projects which have achieved a balance between architecture and landscape, indoors and outdoors, and the green and the grey. What lessons can we learn from their creation – and, just as importantly, their on-going maintenance – at a time when the value of the planning is being questioned? Tonight’s event will feature a series of short talks on the topic of importance of planning and maintenance to the built green space. This event is being held in partnership with the Landscape Institute and the 20th Century Society.

This is our confirmed list of speakers and topics:

Christopher Woodward on Georgian Bath

Andrew Harland of LDA Design on Letchworth

James Lord, restorer of the New Town at Stevenage

Janet Jack, landscape architect of the Alexandra Road estate in Camden

Jonathan Kendall of Fletcher Priest, architects of the Olympic 2012 Athletes Village

The evening will be chaired by Alastair McCapra, Chief Executive of the Landscape Institute.

Following the discussion we invite you to join us for a two-course meal and a large glass of wine in our sustainable, vegetarian and locally sourced café to celebrate the great success of the exhibition.
