I was delighted to be the only garden designer selected as a finalist 

in the international competition to reimagine the landscape for Cambridge University Library.

The concept sees the library rising from a native planted landscape inspired by the surrounding fenland.  The ground plan captures the shapes and forms of that landscape.

Long dark Yew hedges have shafts of daylight streaking between them. The hedges capture the experience of walking through the book stacks in the library itself, introducing the architecture that is to follow.

A series of light filled places, a new glass pavilion, courtyard of dappled shade lead visitors through the main doors and into the dramatic entrance hall of the library building.
