In­clud­ing Tom Stu­art-Smith’s plans for the new The Hep­worth Riverside Gallery Gar­den and news of the 2018 Gar­denista Con­sid­ered De­sign Awards


Plans for a large pub­lic gar­den at the Hep­worth Wake­field gallery in West York­shire have been re­vealed. De­signed by Tom Stu­art-Smith, the riverside gar­den will link the David Chip­per-field-de­signed gallery to nearby Vic­to­rian mill build­ings and cover an area of around 6,000 square me­tres. A band of wood­land plant­ing will pro­vide a buf­fer against road traf­fic, while a se­ries of in­ter­link­ing ir­reg­u­lar-shaped bor­ders will be filled with a mix of peren­ni­als and grasses, punc­tu­ated by trees, and partly edged by beech hedges to pro­tect vul­ner­a­ble plant­ing and pro­vide win­ter struc­ture. Hard land­scap­ing will in­clude ar­eas of cast con­crete, to com­ple­ment the gallery’s ex­te­rior, and gran­ite paving. hep­worth­wake­
