  • Wanted: a head for heights and herbaceous borders on the living wall:: “10,000 plants in 80 rows of windowboxes entirely cover the 68ft tall façade of Victoria’s 100-year-old Rubens at the Palace Hotel, just along from Buckingham Palace.”
  • Rare Habitat Roof In The Pipeline:: “Plans to create the UK’s first ever ‘green roof’ using the unique Whin vegetation of Northumberland National Park have just been announced. The roof will combine the rare and nationally significant Northumbrian wildflower grassland and wild mosses that grow in the National Park to expand the area of this declining habitat.”
  • Natural History Museum Civic Realm Competition::  “A crucial early initiative is the successful resolution of the Museum’s Grounds that make up over half of the site area. This two-stage competition invites designers to help re-imagine the grounds and create a new civic public realm as a fitting setting for this much-loved building and Collection.”
