The Garden & Landscape Designers Association (GLDA) has announced plans for its 20th International Design Seminar to be held at the Crowne Plaza Dublin on 20th February 2016.
According to the GLDA it has ‘looked beyond the confines of these islands towards the East’ as a source of inspiration of this seminar. It says ‘Through our speakers, leading designers and plants people from both East and West, we will explore how the East’s traditions and cutting edge contemporary design and planting philosophy, complements and interconnects with that of the West and vice versa.’
The event will see talks and discussions led by some of the world’s leading designers including Andrew Wilson, who will speak on his experiences working on projects in Singapore and China, Mr Xiaowei Ma and Mrs Xiao Ying Xie who will speak on some of the ambitious projects currently happening in China and Anikey Bhagwat who will speak of his work which is described by the GLDA as ‘transforming the landscape of India’.
Cor van Gelderen will also speak at the event about ‘three generations of intrepid Dutch plantsmen, plant collecting in the East and about the extraordinary town of Boskoop, once home to 1,000 nurseries, beautifully laid out in long sloping plots down to the river.’
The GLDA’s annual seminar is widely regarded as Ireland’s foremost platform for the dissemination of ideas and information on contemporary garden making and landscape shaping. It also has a reputation for being entertaining and thought provoking, while remaining relevant to every facet of the industry, from plant production to architecture.
