23 March 2016 7:00 pm. at MK Gallery, Central Milton Keynes

The Fred Roche Foundation wants to champion the concept of Milton Keynes as a Garden City – “a City of Trees”.  This event will explore the importance of landscape design and focus on the central role it plays in defining the character and structure of our city.

The speakers will debate the crucial role of landscape in the original vision of MK, how it was developed, and the value and issues of the maturing landscape in the life of the city today.

FRF invites you to join us in determining how to use our experience of creating “a City of Trees” along with examples from elsewhere, and to consider how to best inform what is now becoming a critical part of the growth debate – the need for an inspiring vision for local and regional growth, and a green and livable city.

Speakers include:

  • Kathryn Moore Professor of Landscape Architecture, Birmingham City University
  • Neil Higson Chief Landscape Architect, Milton Keynes Development Corporation (1977-1988)
  • Will Cousins Chair, David Lock Associates

The Chair is David Locke
