The Botanic Garden Design Competition Winners are ...
20 April 2011
The competition resulted in interest from gardens all around the world.
After a great deal of deliberation, FRLA announced that the winning entry is a joint submission received from the De Kruidhof Botanic Garden, in the Netherlands, and the National Museums of Kenya, Nairobi Botanic Garden.
Why this joint submission was selected, and what had FRLA Ltd hoped to achieve through the consultancy?
Dr James Furse-Roberts, replied “We were looking for a submission that caught our imagination and had potential to 'get the creative juices flowing'. There were several entries that achieved this but this one was chosen because, as a joint submission, it would benefit two botanic gardens and the brief to link these geographically separate gardens with one project added an extra dimension to the challenge."
He added "Until the design process is further along, I am wary of speculating on quite what form the result will take".
