Kew Visit

Yesterday, Roderick James Architects, from Totnes in Devon, came up to London to visit our new Herbarium building for Kew Gardens. Ted Cullinan and Carol Costello (Project Director) gave the group a brief talk on the history of the existing Herbarium buildings and the design for the new wing. A tour of the building followed and Ted, Carol and Amy from ECA were then invited to join the group on a boat trip down the Thames.

After negotiating a four foot 'leap of faith' into the ribs from Kew Pier, a sometimes rather damp, but always exhilarating journey along the river ensued.

Thank you to Roderick James Architects for a wonderful afternoon.
