Competition seeks contemporary solutions using the ideas of Capability Brown
The Landscape Institute has launched an ideas competition to produce a contemporary landscape design using some of the approaches of Capability Brown, as part of the Capability Brown Festival.
Entrants are asked to produce proposals for Moccas Hill Wood in Hertfordshire, a 45ha site owned by the Woodland Trust and leased to Natural England. In the 18th Century it was incorporated into the Moccas Hill Court Registered Park and Garden, a landscape designed with some influence from Capability Brown.
The client is looking for a design that will conserve and enhance the cultural and natural heritage of the site, providing habitat restoration and inspiration for a broad range of audiences to enjoy and learn about the site and its setting.
See full details of the competition. To find out more about the celebrations planned for the next two years, or to get involved, visit the Capability Brown Festival website, and follow the Festival on Twitter: @BrownCapability.
