Wilder Associate will be building a garden at this years Hampton Court Flower Show entitled 'Embrace the Flood'. The garden will build on the theme of the practice in designing flood resilient and water sensitive landscapes in both urban and rural settings. Wilder Associates are currently involved in the development of new gardens at the Natural History Museum that will embrace the concept of resilient cities and collaboration with nature. The practice are also engaged in a number of UK and China schemes, including four new Innovation parks in collaboration with BRE and Tsingua University and the principles and Guidelines for the Xiong'an New District near Beijing.

Keeping coming back over the next 8 weeks as we countdown to the unveiling of our new garden at Hampton Court.

Teaching at Oxford Brookes by Peter Wilder

Today saw a lively debate at Oxford Brookes University about the influence of AI and AR in architecture with a lecture by Peter Wilder on the impact of drones, Big Data and cloud processing on the design studio. The lecture was rounded off with a demonstration of our Inspire 1 Drone in the courtyard and an afternoon of critiques on student work. With just four weeks to go until the end of the semester, some amazing work is emerging with themes that vary from mental health and well being, biomimicry, augmented reality, fractal and algorithmic design, and a human upgrade factory. 

It clear that technology is influencing the design direction of many students and symbiotic relationships with nature seem to be at the forefront of student work. Im looking forward to a return visit in the next academic year!

Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment by Peter Wilder

The cold snap has provided an ideal time to go out and obtain landscape views without foliage on the trees. We are currently working on a scheme in Kent where proposals for an acoustic bund will change the short term and long term views from the North Downs AONB. If you are considering carrying out visual impact work for a proposed development then now is a good time to contact us.

Escaping 2017 by Peter Wilder

Escape-room.JPG

2017 was an incredible year for us with a host of new projects and new clients as well as some great events. We have watched our scheme at the Natural History Museum slowly take shape and we look forward to its official opening in April this year. It has involved working closely with a great team including Kim Wilkie, Niall McLaughlin Architects, Expedition Engineering, Atelier Ten, Thomas Mathews, Jane Toplis Associates, Blakedown landscape and of course the Natural History Museum. The scheme is complex and involves working both with a Grade 1 listed building and a highly used public realm, heritage materials and modern access standards. So just to keep the team on their toes we embarked on an escape room challenge to test our ability to work together to solve complex problems. And the result? Well you'll have to ask us next time you see us!

Waterloo Sunset by Peter Wilder

Waterloo Sunset

Not everything about London is doom and gloom in winter. Sometimes the grey overcast skies let a slim crevice of light to spill across Londons skyline. Old brick buildings are set aglow whilst shiny new skyscrapers become beacons in the afternoon sun. Regardless of whether we have a white Christmas or a grey one, we wish all of our clients, colleagues and co-collaborators the very best for the holiday season and we look forward to another successful year in 2018.
