The Hidden Garden, Tramway – the idea was to reclaim the brown site behind the Tramway. Working with landscape architects and City Design Coop. Considerations lead to gardens in culture, the paradise garden – Celtic and Asian culture reflective of the community. The Asian community never used the Tramway space – how can this be changed? Discussions with the community lead to the idea of being safe in a garden yet with a sense of adventure. The garden contained discreet references to the community cultures, connections with the planting and relevance to its occupants.

Radiance, Festival of Light – Glasgow’s lighting strategy reclaiming the city with light

Projects described as being about public and private, social space rather than natural space. Working towards striping back and being exposed, working in a pure form, participatory, not knowing it works or its outcome. When being placed in the public realm it has to be experienced.
