Landscape architects Grant Associates is to showcase 20 years of collaborative design work with an exhibition at architect Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ (FCBStudios) West London base.
The event, called Collaborative by Nature, will be open to the public and features a selection of projects presented by Grant Associates, in partnership with FCBStudios and communication design agency Thomas Matthews.
The three design studios have collaborated on a range of projects inspired by nature, ecology and conservation after working together on ‘The Earth Centre’ in Doncaster in 1997 – the year in which Andrew Grant founded Grant Associates.
Other collaborative projects by the trio include RIBA Stirling housing scheme Accordia in Cambridge and Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay.
Andrew Grant, founder and director at Grant Associates, said: “This is an exhibition that tracks our respective journeys into collaborative design, each one representing a new level of ambition for addressing national and global environmental issues. Design without collaboration is boring.”
He added: “Working together with individuals with different perspectives but a common goal is not only hugely enjoyable but it delivers better solutions. It is quite something to reflect on more than 20 years of design collaboration with Thomas Matthews and Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.
“In that time we have refined our respective approaches to sustainable design but we always know the next project will deliver a surprising and exciting outcome.”
