Jacob Brown: Garnock Valley Landscape Remediation

Garnock Valley Landscape Remediation

What do you want people to know about your graduation project?

The graduating project is a culmination of four years studying at ECA, bringing together the techniques and concepts learned throughout that time. The project moves through a wide variety of scales and ways of exploring, designing, and rejuvenating landscapes that have become forgotten or redundant.
 

What or who is your inspiration and why is following this route important to you?

Inspiration for following this pathway has come from various sources, but the two most influential would probably be an artistic expression and climate change and how combining these interests would allow for creative solutions to sustainability and climate issues globally alongside finding a personal style or expression for this creation.

What has been your favourite thing about ECA? 

ECA provides a very creative atmosphere and one that encourages innovation, especially within architectural disciplines which are often seen as quite traditional. Edinburgh as a city is a beautiful place to live and study and has a rich historical context that is interesting to explore alongside a contemporary diversity of cultural venues.
 

What are your hopes for life after ECA? Do you have any plans? 

I plan on returning to Edinburgh University to further develop my knowledge and specialist areas of interest within sustainability and landscape architecture.
