Festival of Architecture 2017

LIS are delighted to collaborate with the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) on the Festival of Architecture 2017 (FOA 2017).


‘Prospect & Refuge’

An exhibition based on the creation of ‘The Garden Office’ encouraging people at home to take their working environment outdoors.

Glasgow based Landscape Architect, Anca Panait has won silver medal at The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) 2017 Young Designer of the Year Competition at the RHS Flower Show, Tatton Park.

As part of the competition, her garden was constructed, exhibited and judged in July 2017.

The FOA2017 will be a photographic and time lapse exhibition of the construction progress illustrating the progress from start to completion. This exhibition will be on display in two locations in Glasgow over the month of September:

  • The Boilerhouse at the Tramway Hidden Gardens (25A Albert Drive, G41 2PE) on the 16th of September as part of our Doors Open Day event and the 17th of September
  • The Mitchel Library Granville Street Foyer (G3 7DN) from the 18th to the 23rd of September


‘At Home with Landscape Architecture’ – Doors Open Day September 2017

We participated in the 2017 ‘Doors Open Day’ with no great expectation of attracting many visitors as our office is 6 miles out of town and it was a week day. We were therefore very pleased to have a total of a dozen people visit – their motivation was partly to see the B Listed Building in which our office is located and partly curiosity as to what landscape architecture involves – so that’s 12 more people who now understand what we do!” – Ros Maclennan – horner +  maclennan Landscape architects, Inverness

The LIS are participating in the Scottish Civic Trust ‘Doors Open Day’ scheme across Scotland on the 5th and the 16th of September.

The following practices will be opening their doors as part of At Home With Landscape Architecture:

  • Horner MacClennan Studios in Inverness (1 Dochfour Home Farm, Inverness IV3 8GY) on the 5th of September from 10am to 5pm
