[Kew Gardens: Childrens Garden]
Tasked with designing and drawing up 4 engaging, but simple signboards to be placed around the new 'Children's Garden' at Kew, together with Jonny Martin, we came up with these.
The poems, written by the poet laureate, reflect the charactistics of each element and how they help nature develop. The motif's and structural designs facilitate the presentation and integration of these poems into the garden.
The timber boards, holding CNC engraved motifs and words are bolted onto welded steel frames with small laser cut graphic details. The structures are based on a small concrete footing to ensure their longevity.
This project was completed in collaboration with Jonny Martin [carpenter & fabricator].
