Interdisciplinary working, improved collaboration and holistic
approaches to landscape

Thursday, 19th February 2009
Cavendish Conference Centre, London, W1

An instructive, focussed landscape conference aimed at providing inspiration and practical solutions for your public space designs.

Top reasons to attend:

  • Improve how you work in landscape by taking a holistic approach to design

  • Develop a better working relationship with professionals from different disciplines

  • Gain insight into the latest trends in landscape and the public realm from The Landscape Institute

  • Hear the nitty-gritty detail on key technical areas, including SUDS, BREEAM and integrating infrastructure into landscape design

  • Find out how to prolong the life of your project through developing a management and maintenance schedule with the client

Landscape architecture is becoming more respected by clients and the public. As a result, demand for high quality public space is growing.

Yet buildings and public space are often viewed separately, and therefore a sense of place is not always successfully achieved.

By approaching building and landscape design holistically, the design team can ensure we have an inspiring, intelligent public realm.
