Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Timberplay (2006 – 2008)
This two year project was jointly funded by the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI), Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). A graduate of landscape architecture worked within the company Timberplay – who import wooden play equipment made by Julian Richter in Germany to provide landscape design skills. The project embedded landscape design into the heart of the company which had previously focused on sales and implementation. The aim is to develop play spaces in `natural settings´, which include the use of landform and planting.
