Let us introduce miNiATURE... A pioneering event that will see 10 leading landscape designers from around the world create unique and ambitious gardens spaces in a mininature size using 3D printing.
Created in response to the rapid development of 3D printing which has allowed the modelling of garden design to become much more attainable, the aim of miNiATURE is to enable designers to move away from designs that may often present limitations such as restricted budgets, planting season or focus on awards. miNiATURE instead gives these prolific garden designers the opportunity to experiment and explore innovative designs through the media of 3D printing along with traditional modelling.
Up until recently models of landscapes have taken a long time and expense but the brave new world of 3D printing alongside traditional modelling techniques has made high quality, detailed and accurate models accessible for the first time.
You will notice how each design is acutely unique with some of the gardens 10 metres deep and some 10 metres tall, however the one thing they all have in common is how different they are from your average backyard and how they will all inspire gardeners to do something new with their own plot.
The internationally renowned designers include Myles Baldwin [Australia], Jim Fogarty [Australia], Jihae Hwang [South Korea], Sarah Eberle [UK], Jamie Dunstan [UK], Andy Sturgeon [UK], Jo Thompson [UK], Adam Frost [UK], John Brookes [UK] and Wilson McWilliam [UK].
miNiATURE is the the first ever exhibition of its kind and is free to the public but is only open for three days at London's The Strand Gallery, before touring to Europe and then Japan and Australia later this year.
miNiATURE is co-curated by Tom Harfleet, Andrew Fisher Tomlin and Kajsa Björne, all well known international designers.
