Design workshop with prof. Nigel Dunnett

Creative Flow Workshop

25th August, 2024. 10am – 5pm

Vilnius

This workshop will give you an insight into the process by which Nigel Dunnett develops landscape design concepts. You will learn and try it out for yourself. This is a hands-on interactive workshop.

You will be immersed in a certain creative flow that will allow you to create expressive, coherent and unified planting schemes that fit the spirit and context of the place. You will develop concepts for landscape spaces that can form the basis for further development of plant design.

You will work as an artist, but at the same time you will develop concepts that are based on science and sustainable plant design.

This workshop is aimed at:

  • Landscape architects who design their own projects,
  • Landscape designers working on private landscape projects,
  • Students of landscape field,
  • Enthusiasts who are looking for new ideas for their garden.

Preparation:

  • No experience in art or science, or special skills, is required.
  • Please bring a photo of a nature or landscape that inspires you.
  • We will provide site layouts on which we will work. Drawing and other materials will also be provided, however, you can bring your favourite drawing or painting materials.

Prof. Nigel Dunnett (UK)

Landscape designer, book author, professor at Sheffield University

Nigel Dunnett is a world-renowned leader who sets trends in modern plant design. He believes that plant selection should not be merely cosmetic; instead, he encourages the creation of green spaces that are dynamic, natural, beautiful, and impactful. He envisions green spaces that can fundamentally transform urban life. You will discover how he achieves this.

N. Dunnett is an author of several books, an active participant in international research, a presenter at conferences, and a consultant for landscape architects and urban planners. Some of his most notable design projects include the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London (in collaboration with James Hitchmough) and the Barbican Centre in London. He has also won a gold medal at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show and received numerous international awards for his contributions.

The workshop will be held in English and translated into Lithuanian.
