Kengo Kuma designed a pavilion centrepiece for Luciano Giubbilei’s Laurent Perrier garden which as awarded the RHS Gold medal.

Echoing the hue of its sponsor’s refreshments, the flowers are arranged to create a ‘flowing tapestry of colours’.

Chetwoods Architects’ ‘vertical allotment’ also won the RHS Gold medal as part of the B&Q show garden. Designed by Laurie Chetwood and Patrick Collins, the scheme is the third installation by the practice to win the medal.

The garden showcased different ways of growing food in urban settings.

Chetwoods’ display was opened by TV presented Lorraine Kelly.  She said: ‘Encouraging more and more people to grow their own, whatever space they have, is good news for the health of the nation and our planet.’

  • ...delighted that Kengo Kuma and Chetwoods Architects have succeeded in this arena. The Chelsea Flower Show has so long seemed the ideal platform for architectural talent, rather than the makeover brigade.
