I was thrilled to be invited to present my work as part of Urban Fabric and Secret Cinema at Architecture + Design Scotland's 'Stalled Spaces Seminar' last week in Glasgow. It was a great event with a host of inspiring speakers. Particular highlights were Andreas Lang from Public Works and Bobby Niven of The Bothy Project. Videos of the event to come soon!
It's a well known fact that gardening is good for you, not just tending to plants outside but having a view of green can do wonders for health and well-being. From reducing stress, to promoting faster healing and improving concentration, there are a lot of reasons you might want to surround yourself with some luscious green.

Very easy to do and perfect for succulents.
