The Garden of the Beasts is a proposal for the creation of a new children’s garden at Hampton Court Palace. The team communicated their ideas through innovative design and vision. They used hand drawings but also embraced film while exploring other mediums of communication such as model making and revenue branding. These were used not just as marketing tools but as part of the design process. The use of animation demonstrates its untapped potential as a communication tool for landscape architects.

Along with three other design teams, Davies White were commissioned to produce design proposals for a magical childrens play garden in the Tiltyard at Hampton Court Palace. The proposals were to be inspired by Hampton Courts stories, legends and mythology, and to have a magical quality for all its users. The proposals should engage, inspire, excite and surprise young visitors and their families alike. Consideration should be given to how the garden will be marketed and promoted to a wider audience.
