A Collaborative Approach to Design and Planting

Monday, 2nd September 2019

10.00am to 4.30pm

From concept to delivery: In this session, Charlotte Harris and Hugo Bugg will share current and recent studio projects including residential, show and public garden spaces. Exploring the journey from conception to delivery, they will cover their approach to concept, design, detailing, planting and construction using visualisations, examples and work in progress.

Effective collaboration: Taking a look behind the scenes at their practice, Charlotte and Hugo will share some of the challenges of working in a design partnership; how they have (or haven’t!) resolved them; practical solutions to working apart and together; how they manage a team of landscape designers in those circumstances; and what to consider if you are thinking of working collaboratively with someone, of whatever design discipline.
