Landscape Learn will grow into an online and real time platform to support learning and engagement with the landscapes around us. It will be open to students, professionals and communities, and will be hosted by a network of landscape experts to provide an agile, process driven and collaborative method of learning.

Over the next 12 months we plan to test our ideas, through a series of free, participatory events. Visit landscapelearn.com to find out more.

J & L Gibbons working with Architects Stanton Williams, Asif Khan and conservation architect Julian Harrap have been announced as the winners of the Museum of London’s international competition for the new museum at West Smithfield.

Their early stage concept includes:
• A new lifted landmark dome which would create a beautiful light-filled entrance to the museum;
• Innovative spiral escalators transporting visitors down to the exhibition galleries in a vast excavated underground chamber;
• Flexible spaces that can serve as a new meeting place for London and a centre for events and debate;
• A new sunken garden and green spaces to provide pockets of tranquillity.

London Tree and Woodland Awards 2015

J & L Gibbons have been awarded the Trees in Development Award for the Angel Building, a project developed for the Derwent Group in conjunction with Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects with trees supplied by Lorenz von Ehren Nursery.

Alexandra Road Park, officially reopened to the public at the beginning of September 2015.

J & L Gibbons Landscape Architects and Erect Architecture were appointed as the designers for the park restoration, and Around the Block project-managed the entire process on behalf of Camden. Stakeholder liaison has been key throughout the project with the project team working very closely with the Tenants and Residents Association and the Friends of Alexandra Road Park. The ability to review proposals with the original landscape architect, Janet Jack, was also a unique opportunity.

The project received £1.5m funding through the joint Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery funded ‘Parks for People’ programme in 2013.

Help us understand how city living is affecting mental wellbeing.

Urban Mind is an app that measures your experience of city living in the moment. By collecting real-time data, we will be able to understand how different aspects of the urban environment affect mental wellbeing. We hope the results of this research project will inform future urban planning and social policy aimed at improving design & health in our cities.

This project is a collaboration between King’s College London, J&L Gibbons, Van Alen Institute, The Sustainable Society Network, A+E & Phytology
