The Sackler Crossing : RIBA Award 2008
The 120-hectare expanse of landscape by celebrated British designers of the past such as Capability Brown, William Kent and Decimus Burton. In 2003 UNESCO listed the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew as a World Heritage Site.
In 2004 this commission for the latest in a series of architectural interventions at Kew, a bridge across the lake. The commission echoes the precedent established by William Kent for objects placed within the landscape to be stumbled upon as though by accident. It sits comfortably within a comprehensive master plan developed by Wilkinson Eyre.
