Parks and Prejudice

Do we give people what they want, or do we give people what we think they need?

Over the last few months in particular, there has been renewed and overdue focus on unconscious bias, particularly relating to cultural background. Many of us have been considering and educating ourselves with regard to rectifying engrained and long-standing imbalance within the society in which we live, work and serve. Dr Bridget Snaith’s ‘Green Space or White Space’ video was an eye-opening reminder of how this permeates and can be redressed within our realm of work.

Our Year Out at Planit-IE

We kicked off our year in practice by jetting off to Copenhagen, immersed within the Planit family from the get-go. This gave us a wonderful opportunity to really get to know our colleagues from all studios. We spent two days on bikes visiting some of Copenhagen’s great public realm and had a lot of fun along the way.READ MORE

Bridgefield Street Pocket Park

Shoppers, diners and businesses in Stockport will soon be able to enjoy a town-centre parklet and pocket park; a mini park featuring seating, greenery and cycle parking. The pocket park has been installed in a previously under-used part of Bridgefield Street which has been transformed by planting and a vibrant art wall, with a concrete table tennis table and chimes for children to play with.


Paris, je t’aime

When planning a study trip, there is often a long and heated debate as to where the team should go. The inevitable questions of budget, travel time and ‘fun factor’ all rear their heads and are discussed at length by the group. No such discussions here in Team Tub. Lead by Matthew Warner, the team were the first to plan their trip and laid claim to the Queen of Landscapes – Paris.

Year Out Refelections

Working at Planit-IE during our year out couldn’t have provided us with a better insight into the landscape profession. We have both had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects throughout the year; ranging from parks and large public spaces, to streets and garden design.
