Hello and welcome to 'Nature's Architects', you’re in the right place if you want to understand more about the interaction between the natural and built environments.

2020 was a strange year for many of us, and the start of 2021 looks pretty similar. It has resulted in so much change and many new challenges, with many of us working from home, home-schooling again and possibly reviewing what our personal and professional aspirations are. 

One thing that I’m sure all of us have in common is the increased awareness and appreciation for nature and the landscape, where we live, work and play.

  • Do you think there's been a positive impact on what we expect from green space?
  • Have you personally witnessed seasonal environmental changes, whether it be noticing the garden birds feeding and calling, hedgehogs roaming your garden, the scent of spring and summer flowers or the change in leaf colour on the trees in autumn?

Can this positivity now be applied through all sectors involved within the planning and development worlds, to combine great architectural design, with well planned, delivered and maintained green and blue infrastructure, which provides both quantifiable and unquantifiable benefits to the final users? 

We're going to chatting some really interesting industry experts from the housing developers, planning consultant, architects, landscape architects and environmental sector consultants, plus most importantly hearing from what the next generation think and want. 

So you’re in the right place if you want to understand more about how to create great place and space and what it requires from us to act as Nature's Architects.
