Far from the Madding Crowd
In this episode, we visit the North London studio of Gustafson Porter + Bowman and talk to directors Neil Porter and Mary Bowman about the role of Landscape Architecture in tomorrow’s cities.
With pressure from rapidly increasing populations building up in our cities, the already frenetic lifestyle is now overlaid with unprecedented levels of construction fall out; noise, dust and general chaos making the creation of quiet havens even more important for the sanity of city workers and residents.
Fittingly, the studio we are about to visit has been unashamedly created from raw concrete, is tucked away in a quiet corner of London and exudes a purposeful peace, in many ways reflecting the work the firm designs.
