After hearing of her success Jane said: “I was so delighted to have my design ‘validated’ on an international platform; awards such as this help to launch new careers and for me it's now a firm step up on that ladder”. As the Gold Award winner Jane will be awarded a scholarship and an award to be presented at the APLD’s International Landscape Design Conference to be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico on September 15th 2016. Of her entry the lead judge Greg Pierceall, Professor Emeritus, Purdue Landscape Architecture said of this complex site and residence: “Overall this is a stellar site design”. He added: “At a macro scale looking at the total composition the project is great. The site spaces, plantings and surfacing are well done as is the layout and construction details. The project presentation is very well defined, outlined and presented. The plans, images, sections and references work well to convey the weave of plantings and areas within the site design. Director of the London College of Garden Design, Andrew Fisher Tomlin said “we have always focused our design training to be world-class and Jane’s award for a space that is both calm and yet full of vibrancy is a great reflection of what we want to deliver to our students. Jane’s success is well-deserved and we hope will lead to even greater recognition”. -ENDS- About the London College of Garden Design The London College of Garden Design aims to offer the best professional garden design courses available in the UK.
