Designing like a gardener

Eric Guibert

Since the last PRS, various methodologies have been used intuitively and serendipitously to clarify our attraction towards processes of growth.

Watercolour drawings and public speaking have been used as medium to classify our repertoire and locate our preferred area of practice. It lies between improvisation with the inhabitants and composition in a balance that supports and reveals the processes of diverse ecosystems and range of behaviours.

Through hand drawn sections and growing models, our preferred symbiotic relationship between 'nature' and 'culture' has been investigated. Meanwhile, photography records the growth of past and present projects.

This presentation will attempt to digest this eclectic mix and present three self-generated projects it has engendered.
