At Polygon we believe our projects are made stronger by research. Both theoretical research into ideas and changing conceptions of landscape and research into materials and how they can be used in new ways.
Our research doesn’t stop at landscape architecture, we look for ideas from a wide range of fields including art, architecture, education and play, environmental science, horticulture and even business. Through this broad approach to research and idea generation we can make connections across fields and develop new and innovative landscapes.
We also believe that is important for clients to understand how we work and think and what our motivations are behind a design. This enables a better match between designer and client, which in turn leads to a better design outcome and a more enjoyable process.
To this end we will be posting short theoretical essays on a range of topics in relation to landscape architecture. These essays are starting points and ideas for further exploration rather than final positions.
