英国ランドスケープ協会年次総会

10月9日と10日に英国のランドスケープ協会(Landscape Institute)の年次総会が開催されます。



いろいろと興味深いプログラム満載です、



例えばセミナーでは住宅開発のための質の高いランドスケープというテーマで以下の発表があります。




  • 住宅建設における、生物多様性、持続可能な洪水防止など

  • 既存住宅の改修(レトロフィット)

  • 新しい住宅建設における造園家の役割

  • 高齢者のための住宅外部空間の整備



説明文によると、やはり、雨水管理、生物多様性、低炭素は大きな課題となっているようです。





楽しいプログラムとしてはサイトビジットが準備されています。

今回はさすがに参加できませんが、今後のロンドン観光の参考になりそうです、、か?



1 Barbican Estate Private Gardens, Barbican




The Barbican Estate completed by the City of London Corporation in 1967, is one of the most pioneering public housing schemes in London. As well as the public spaces adjacent to the arts centre, there are four private gardens available only to residents. Sarah Gaventa, Director of CABE Space will lead a guided tour.

2 Golden Lane Estate public realm and private roof gardens, Barbican


The Grade II-listed Golden Lane Estate completed in 1957, was recently recognised as an exemplar of good design by receiving a 2008 Housing Design Award. Together with generous public spaces, it also has a superb roof garden which is now closed for security reasons. This visit, led by resident Roland Jeffery, will offer access to the roof garden as well as an examination of the way in which the estate was planned.

3 Whitmore and Haggerston East Estate, Hackney


In a challenging and fascinating East End neighbourhood, these two estates transferred from the local authority to Canalside Housing Partnership over a decade ago. The landscape approach, based on raising the ethos, designing out social problems and encouraging ownership of outdoor spaces, has contributed greatly to their transformation. Whitelaw Turkington Landscape Architects, who will lead the visit, have worked continuously with residents from initial concept through to construction and ongoing maintenance of communal gardens.

4 Priory Green Estate, Kings Cross


Peabody Trust have recently refurbished the Priory Green Estate. Designed by Berthold Lubetkin and constructed from 1943 to 1957, refurbishment includes a new community centre and entrance. The reconfigured grounds were designed by Farrer Huxley Associates. Mathew Frith from Peabody and Noel Farrer from Farrer Huxley will offer a tour of the private gardens set within this listed estate.

5 Crown Estate allotments and grounds, Regent's Park Underground


The Crown Estate sandwiched between Regent's Park and Somers Town is a huge surprise to those more familiar with the Park's Nash terraces. The buildings, constructed in the 1920s, offer all residents their own allotment. This visit, led by Nicci Talbot-Morris, Head of Housing at the Crown Estate Housing Department will look at the history and management of this very forward-looking housing development.
