LANDSCAPE TUTORIAL: ANDY SINCLAIR, VECTOR DESIGN CONCPETS
One of the Event’s landscape workshops will be run by Andy Sinclair, a landscape architect, who is kindly joining us from Vector Design Concepts. Andy has a varied design portfolio, ranging from gardens and commercial development sites through to large scale masterplanning and public realm schemes. His presentation will provide a ‘crash course’ in landscape design that will assist in the development of our proposal.
Joren Heise is a landscape architect at Urbed and a LULU design tutor at the University of Manchester. Joren has kindly agreed to attend our mid-event pin up; he will critique our work and offer important advice on how to best progress the project.
