Landscape Garden Community
Shaun Aldred: Landscape Garden Community. London South Bank University, 2019.

Abstract

The dissertation reviews current green architecture and landscape design around the world with specific reference to the UK market. The review forms the basis of a case which explores a new development proposal for a small-scale landscaped community set in a rural location on green field land.

A wide range of people were contacted across the housing industry and beyond. Conversations with senior executives of many of the volume house builders in the UK together with some of the more innovative small and mid-size developers identified key differences in the importance they attach to design, corporate brand and their view of the housing market as well as their comments on the viability of such a landscaped community.

The chapters include a survey of architects who are seeking to change the between buildings and the environment dealing with such issues as environmental technology, energy conservation, sustainability and the conversion of all these elements into architecture as art.

Chapter 4 focuses on landscaped gardens and reviews some of the more innovative designers and their influence on the built environment.

Other stakeholder’s views about the development proposal are considered including those of architects, financiers, local planning authorities and landscape designers. To ascertain potential demand for the development, estate agents and journalists who write for various broadsheet papers were also contacted.

Given the dynamics of bringing together a disparate group of people to design, build and maintain landscaped gardens, insights from a rural anthropologist are considered together with related marketing issues in how to target potential residents and the key communications that would be required to generate interest.
