Landscape at 50
Dominic Cole: Eden Project
Dominic Cole graduated from Leeds Beckett University in 1980. Whilst working at Land Use Consultants he worked on the Masterplan for the Eden Project. Dominic has since set up his own practice, Dominic Cole Landscape Architects in 2013.
The Eden Project tells the story of Man and Plants, from food stuffs to complex science and economic relationships, using landscape as the canvas. Dominic developed the site masterplan from the worked out china clay quarry and designed the whole landscape layout including levels, siting of buildings, parking and paths. He worked closely with the Eden core team to create the plant stories and briefs for each story site. He designed the structural planting internally and externally and specified all the external structural planting.
Dominic's original hand drawn plans are deposited at The Garden Museum in Lambeth and can be viewed by appointment.
