Landscape architect Jo Gibbons on why trees matter, urban forestry and greening our cities
11. AJ Climate Champions with Hattie Hartman.
In this second episode on landscape, we speak to Jo Gibbons of landscape practice J&L Gibbons whose wide-ranging work encompasses both the Dalston Eastern Curve Garden in Hackney and Walpole Park in Ealing, the setting of John Soane’s Pitzhanger Manor.
Gibbons explains why she won’t go near a project unless she’s involved from the outset and why today, diversity of planting is essential for biosecurity. A frequent external examiner, Gibbons bemoans the fact that there are so few landscape architects, while in architecture schools, architects too often design landscapes with minimal landscape tuition.
In a news roundup, co-hosts Hattie Hartman and George Morgan unpick the furore surrounding the Serpentine Pavilion’s carbon negative claims and the alarming findings of the latest Committee on Climate Change report.
