Project Centre become finalists for the Landscape Institute Awards
We are excited to announce that our project, the Sir Nicholas Winton Memorial Garden, has been shortlisted by the Landscape Institute Awards as a finalist for the ‘Excellence through Planting and Horticulture Award’. We are especially proud of this achievement as this year saw an unprecedented number of entries with over 180 contestants, each one incredibly talented and impressive.
Now celebrating their 90th year, the Landscape Institute host an annual award ceremony which recognises the boldest, most innovative and most inclusive projects. Recognised by the Landscape industry’s most prestigious members, the awards focus on the value of landscape in connecting people with nature through shared space.
Our entry, the Sir Nicholas Winton Memorial Garden, was designed and built in honour of Sir Nicholas Winton, a Second World War hero who rescued nearly 700 Jewish children from the Czech Republic in 1939. Project Centre worked with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to design the layout of the garden and its planting composition from concept through to construction on a tight deadline in order for it to be opened by the Prime Minister.
We are delighted to have a chance to showcase a project that we care deeply about and continue to celebrate the achievement of Sir Nicholas Winton with the recognition of his memorial park.
Congratulations to Sookyoung Im and David Moores who did an excellent job delivering this high-quality project which reflects the standards of Project Centre’s work.
The awards will be held on Thursday 28 November in London. Good luck team!
