Magic Garden on path to LI Award
The Magic Garden has been shortlisted for a Landscape Institute (LI) Award 2017, which means that it now stands to be recognised with awards from the UK industry’s two most important professional bodies.
The project was entered into the LI awards category of Design for a Small Scale Development (for schemes up to one hectare). Just after its official opening by the Duchess of Cambridge, in May 2016, Tim Richardson wrote in The Daily Telegraph: “… the Magic Garden is about the size of a football pitch but feels considerably larger because it is so packed with incident.”
Robert Myers said, “We’re delighted that the garden has been shortlisted for awards by both the Landscape Institute and the SGD. Our aim has been to create a place full of beauty, an essence of escapism and an exciting setting for learning, interaction and expression through exploration and adventure.”
The Landscape Institute Awards will be announced on 23 November, at a ceremony in London hosted by best-selling author, Bill Bryson OBE. RMA won an LI Award in 2006 for its work on Torrington Square, London.
