Slant Garden Design Award 2011

Slant Garden Design Award 2011

The “blanks” or “options” in the brief are deliberate, and the opportunity on offer to the entrants is that they can fill in the blanks in any way that they choose. For example you can decide the country, the climate and who the occupiers of this property are likely to be, along with what their needs and wishes for the garden might be. Some may see this as a home for a young family; others may see it as a home for adults only. You may want to make this a holiday home or something more permanent. Your imaginary clients may or may not be keen gardeners, they may or may not be big entertainers, but what you must assume is that whatever their preferences might be, they want to make the most of their garden. Making yourself the “virtual client” may be a way to go.

They hope that by adopting this approach that you will feel free to demonstrate to the judges not only your planning skills, but also, equally importantly, your creative talents. This is a project of the imagination, for the imagination. For more information, go to the competition’s official website.
