- An innovative workshop series and livebuild project for young people from diverse backgrounds
- A high-profile inspirational talk for professionals and the public
- A series of professional CPD workshops for the landscape sector
Green Horizons: next generation livebuild
Bringing together diverse young people from the Architecture Centre’s Shape My City project, university students from UWE and the University of Gloucester, architects, landscape architects and young engineers, our 2019 livebuild project will include:
- A series of inspiring careers workshops promoting the LI’s #chooselandscape campaign
- A live design and build project to create a temporary structure and public engagement activities for the 2019 Festival of Nature (7-9 June) on the Bristol Harbourside
Green Horizons: Professional CPD series
Responding to a recognised skills gap in the landscape architecture and placemaking sectors, the Architecture Centre is partnering with Landscape Institute South West to host a trio of low cost CPD workshops for professionals and students, exploring the importance of participatory design and community engagement in the design of place and spaces.

- Green Horizons #2: Streets Ahead – co-design techniques in practice with Fin McNab, Streets Reimagined
- Green Horizons #3: Digital technology for participatory placemaking with Jo Morrison, Calvium
Green Horizons: Gardens by the Bay, talk by Andrew Grant
Gardens by the Bay, Singapore’s ‘Garden in a City’ project, is an awe-inspiring testament to inner-city nature planning. It sits on 101 hectares of reclaimed land in downtown Singapore, and exhibits beautiful aerial walkways, Supertrees (iconic vertical gardens), flourishing biodiversity, sustainable energy technologies and the world’s largest glass greenhouse.
Join leading landscape architect Andrew Grant for an exploration of this extraordinary project.
