3D printed garden design show announces top designer line-up

RHS Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winners and designers from Australia and the Republic of Korea will show their garden designs at the first 'miNiATURE' show.

The show, which will show models of gardens which have been created with the help of 3D printers has been created to provide a platform for innovative ideas in garden design which might be harder to show in a real garden.

Taking part from the United Kingdom are John Brookes, Jamie Dunstan, Sarah Eberle, Adam Frost, Andy Sturgeon, Jo Thompson and Wilson McWilliams.

From Australia Myles Baldwin and Jim Fogarty will be exhibiting and from the Republic of Korea Jihae Hwang.

The show is the brainchild of British designers Tom Harfleet and Andrew Fisher Tomlin and Kajsa Bjorne, a landscape designer based in Sweden and Australia.

Bjorne said: "We are really fortunate to have these internationally recognised designers taking part in the show. All were keen to discover how 3D printing, along with traditional modeling techniques, could support their design."

She added " Modeling has allowed the designers to break away from requirements about budget and allowed them to experiment with ideas that you won’t ever have seen in gardens before. They might be minature gardens but there are some big new ideas here that we predict might change people’s perceptions of what might be possible."

MiNiATURE has also announced further sponsors with The Outdoor Room and Provender Nurseries sponsoring individual gardens and joining lead sponsors hobs3D and the London College of Garden Design.

It runs from 5 to 8 March at The Strand Gallery in central London.
